Biannual Project Progress Report: Integrated Coastal Resources Management in Pulau Langkawi
The project began operation in August 2003 and thereafter the progress has been made on the right track compatible with the project work plan unlit 26th December 2004, when the devastating tsunami damaged the project site in Langkawi. Most fishing boats and fishing gear were destroyed or lost, and the fish landing facilities were ruined. Many fishermen’s houses collapsed. The Malaysian authorities together with NGOs and foreign aid organization immediately started the rehabilitation of the tsunami stricken fisheries sector, but it is still too damaged to resume the fishing and related social activities as they were before. This unexpected natural calamity caused the project great change and delays in approach and progress. The degree of damage suffered by the fishing community of the project area was dealt with at length in the Travel Report.
