The Duang Prateep Foundation
Ban Nam Khem is a Thai village that was devastated, both physically and mentally, by the 2004 Sumatra Tsunami. This project provides the community with recommendations for improved tsunami mitigation, addressing the areas of tsunami evacuation towers, greater trust in the warning system and, community-wide tsunami education and training. Reflecting the mission of our project sponsor, the Duang Prateep Foundation, we took steps towards empowering the community in order to promote the mitigation plan's sustainability.
