  • Tsunami early-warning systems established and operational in Africa, the South Pacific, the Mediterranean Sea, the North-East Atlantic and the Caribbean;
  • Vulnerable and weakened communities prepared to cope with disasters through access and use of information and knowledge and to mitigate their impact;
  • Governments advised and assisted in the design of policies mitigating disaster risks and impact;
  • Contributions made to the development of national strategies for natural and human-induced disaster prevention and vulnerability reduction and included in United Nations system common country programming efforts.
