Ensuring a Robust and Reliable Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System For The PICT Region.

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC)- Pacific Tsunami Warning Systems (PTWS) Working Group on Tsunami Warning and Mitigation for the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICT’s) has successfully completed its 5th regional meeting that was held in Honiara, Solomon Islands from the 7th to the 9th of August.

The meeting which was attended by close to 30 representatives from Pacific countries and invited experts and observers, was the opportunity for tsunami warning and mitigation focal points to share the progress of national efforts to ensure effective and reliable tsunami warning and mitigation services for their countries.

The meeting allowed the participants to review tsunami detection, warning and response capabilities of the PICT’s and tsunami mitigation activities in the region. This meeting was also very important for the Working Group to discuss their priorities and future actions.
