On the day of the Jakarta talks to deal with the Asian tsunami crisis, Christian Aid calls on the international community to make a long-term commitment to the region.

'Christian Aid's long experience in dealing with disasters, both natural and man-made, shows that the recovery may take at least three years. A long-term commitment is required from the international community to ensure that communities hardest hit by disaster receive proper shelter and sustainable livelihoods.' Says Andrew Pendleton. Christian Aid's senior policy officer.
