Tsunami Response: Lessons Learned
Tsunami Response: Lessons Learned. On February 10, 2005, Oxfam America President Ray Offenheiser presented testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in which he outlined the lessons learned from the tsunami disaster response to date and called for the delivery of effective and appropriate aid to the tsunami survivors. Foremost in his recommendations are that aid programs be designed with input from the people whom they are intended to benefit, and that all programs meet internationally accepted Sphere standards for disaster relief.
