Penkalin Nilam: A study on women’s land rights in the post-tsunami resettlement process in Batticaloa, Batticaloa, Suriya
This publication documents the unique customary land holding patterns in the East of Sri Lanka which became invisible from national policy discussions on resettlement following the tsunami disaster of 2004 as well as advocacy efforts by the Women’s Coalition for Disaster Management (WCDM) based in Batticaloa which raised awareness about women’s right to land both at the community and at the policy implementation levels.
