Clinton: Formidable Challenges Remain in Post-Tsunami Reconstruction

Speaking at the 4th meeting of the Global Consortium on Tsunami Recovery in New York, UN Special Envoy for Tsunami Recovery Bill Clinton noted that some 100,000 new homes have been built or are under construction across the tsunami-hit region, and that some 550 permanent schools are either completed or under construction. But in Aceh, some 40,000 people are still living in tents.
