The scale of the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was almost unprecedented. In areas with the maximum
tsunami intensity, little could have prevented catastrophic coastal destruction. Further away, however, areas with
coastal tree vegetation were markedly less damaged than areas without. Mangrove forests are the most important
coastal tree vegetation in the area and are one of the world’s most threatened tropical ecosystems.(1).
Measurement of wave forces and modelling of fluid dynamics suggest that tree vegetation may shield coastlines from
tsunami damage by reducing wave amplitude and energy (2). Analytical models show that 30 trees per 100 m2 in a
100-m wide belt may reduce the maximum tsunami flow pressure by more than 90% (3). Empirical and fieldbased
evidence is limited, however.

The village was badly damaged by the Indian Ocean tsunamiIt is a slow process, fixing the damage on the boats.
Here in Hambantota, they are lined up at a makeshift yard where houses once stood.
This is a Muslim community, and for generations has relied on fishing to earn a living. But with the government banning
any rebuilding close to the shore and plans to relocate the town inland, they say their way of life is under threat.
Idris Zaid watches as the men mend their boats - his has been washed away. He clutches a plastic bag. He has just
bought some nylon string as tackle. He refuses to move from the shore, saying it is the only place he can rebuild his
life. He says the government wants to shift Muslims. "The government should have asked the people 'where you want
to go and live?'. Rather than asking, they have made up plans and are going to start building houses [inland].”
