TsunamiTeacher

As a contribution to the building of training to support the communication of tsunami risk to the public, the IOC of UNESCO has developed the TsunamiTeacher Information and Resource Toolkit. The Toolkit brings together a wealth of new and existing information on tsunamis into a single, reliable, and verified global resource that is widely accessible to people, groups and governments around the world. TsunamiTeacher aims to build awareness and capacity to respond and mitigate the impact of tsunamis through the sharing of knowledge, research, and best practices. Materials are available that can be adapted to develop locally relevant responses. A feature of the Toolkit is the ability to customize training modules for different audiences.

Training Modules target the Media, Educational Systems, and the Public and Private Sectors, including governments, non-government organizations, businesses, and community groups. Within the government sector, a large amount of training material has been assembled on earthquake and tsunami science and research, tsunami events, and the building of tsunami warning and mitigation systems. These topics include hazard and risk assessment, operational warning and dissemination systems, tsunami emergency response, alerting, and preparedness, environmental, engineering mitigation and policy, and education and outreach. Resource materials are provided as examples and guidance for decision-makers.

The base language is English and it has been translated into Bahasa (Indonesia), Tagalog (Philippines), Tetun (Timor Leste) and Thai (Thailand).  Other translations planned are Bangla (Bangladesh), French, and Spanish.
