Rebuilding the Tambaks in Aceh
Category : Updates
Rebuilding the Tambaks in Aceh is a video by Visual Backstories that features Pak Mohammad, a charismatic leader in his village, who works with local and international experts to bring back aquaculture, or rather a polyculture system, to the brackish water ponds (tambaks) following the devastating tsunami on Boxing Day, 2004.
AwF Director Kevin Fitzsimmons is shown touring the various reconstruction projects undertaken with funding from a number of aid agencies, foundations, and non-profits, including Aquaculture without Frontiers (AwF).
The people of Aceh have transformed the devastation into once more productive ponds, rebuilding their lives and communities in the process.
