Abstract

ln the aftermath of the Gujarat Earthquake, January 26, 2001, several Indian and Japanese or sanitations joined together in a rehabilitation initiative to produce a model village, with specific focus on upgrading community's living conditions and emphasis on livelihood issues. The initiative was based on the needs and priorities of the community. The cooperation scheme involved different stakeholders from government, non-government, and academic institutions. A mechanism for turning knowledge into practice has been developed, which is regarded as an example of implementation technology. The lessons learned from the implementation of this initiative are applicable to other parts of the world and other types of disasters.
