The impact of natural disasters like floods, cyclones and rising sea levels are evident in many coastal pockets of Tamil Nadu. A preliminary survey of the coastal districts in the state revealed that Cuddalore district has been the worst affected of all districts in the recent past, with the impact of tsunami in 2004, cyclone Thane in 2011 and cyclone Neelam in 2012, creating a detrimental impact on coastal communities and their activities, particularly fishing. This has in turn affected their livelihood to a great extent.
