dc.description.abstractWhen a tsunami struck Aceh in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia on 26 December 2004, it killed 186,000 people and caused widespread destruction. ADB and other organizations provided emergency support through the Earthquake and Tsunami Emergency Support Project. Many fishers died and, as a consequence, much knowledge of coastal areas, fishing grounds, ocean currents and navigational hazards disappeared. Over the centuries, such information had been transferred from father to son. With its loss, fishers often damaged or lost their nets on underwater obstructions, and faced difficulties in identifying their position at sea.This impacted the livelihoods of boat owners, captains, crews, and familie
