Project Name: Coastal Area Plan for Godavari District (1997-1999)

TARU assisted the Coastal Area Plan, supported by the European Union through OXFAM/ HIVOS and implemented by five NGOs, in the cyclone-affected coastal regions of East Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. This was a three-year programme with components of community based disaster mitigation, contingency planning, strengthening/ reconstruction of damaged houses and lifeline infrastructure and TARU provided project management assistance and community-based disaster mitigation expertise to it.
