United Nations Thailand



The 26 December tsunami was the worst natural disaster to ever strike Thailand, causing loss of life as well as major damage to property, the environment and the economy. The severe impact on the natural environment in turn had serious consequences on the fishing and tourism industries and, therefore, thousands of families' livelihoods. Below information shows the impact of the disaster, Thai Government and the UN response, recovery issues and progress and other useful information on the Tsunami 2004.
