Lessons from the tsunami

Al Jazeera revisits two of the areas worst-hit by the 2004 tsunami disaster.

    Five years after the most devastating disaster in modern history, most survivors of the Indian Ocean tsunami have managed to pick up their lives.

    The giant wave swept away loved ones, homes, livelihoods and in some cases entire communities.

    In this special report from two of the worst-hit areas - Sri Lanka and the Indonesian province of Aceh - Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports on some of the lessons learned in the wake of the disaster.
