This paper reviews the reconstruction efforts in Sri Lanka to ascertain the
efficiency of post-disaster reconstruction through identifying the barriers. Even though the
immediate humanitarian relief found to be more effective, long-term reconstruction was
ineffective due to lack of funding, lack of knowledge to support local community, institutional
constraints, and absence of coordinated management. It suggests that the reliance upon the
knowledge, skills, capacities and resources of local people together with effective planning
can lead the reconstruction process towards the success.
