Building Capacity on Tsunami and Inundation Modelling for Tsunami Evacuation Plans

Training of Tsunami Maps, Plans, and Procedure in the Agency for Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Training Centre in Citeko, Cisarua

The third Training on Tsunami Evacuation Maps, Plans and Procedures (TEMPP-3) was held at BMKG training centre in Citeko, Indonesia during 22 November – 1 December 2018.

This is the 3rd of a series of TEMPP trainings organised organized by IOC-UNESCO Indian Ocean Tsunami Information Centre (IOTIC), housed in UNESCO Office Jakarta, jointly with the secretariat of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (ICG/IOTWMS) and the Agency for Meteorology Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG).

The training was attended by 20 participants from 7 countries with trainers from India, Indonesia, and IOC UNESCO. Throughout the training, participants collaborated in the development of tsunami inundation and evacuation maps. The maps were produced using ComMIT and QGIS software and underpinned by national near-coast bathymetry and topography data in conjunction with freely available global bathymetric data.  Participants also drafted templates of public display of tsunami information and discussed evacuation response plans, standard operating procedures and exercise planning.
