The 3rd ESBN Augmenting Tsunami Monitoring Steering Committee Meeting
The 3rd ESBN Augmenting Tsunami Monitoring Steering Committee Meeting will take place on Monday, 23rd November 2020. The virtual SC Meeting. The 3rd SC will discuss, hone, and amend the Draft Action Plan of the project. The purpose of the Action Plan is to build up action on augmenting tsunami monitoring via three strategies and have them function in concert to build redundancy in early warning for tsunami. It is an undertaking that successfully brings together the maritime private sector, academia, government and international agencies to further enhance and promote disaster risk management and its integration (future) in regional policies. The Action Plan strives for a comprehensive early warning system that augments country efforts in tsunami monitoring. Some of the actions identified and taken may also complement and contribute to UN ESCAP Member States' initiatives in the area of ocean science & ocean health and the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).
