dc.description.abstract<p>Since 2009, the Trust Fund for Tsunami, Disaster and Climate Preparedness (TTF) managed by the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has been raising awareness on the tsunami risk posed by the Makran Subduction Zone (MSZ) to countries in the North Western Indian Ocean (NWIO). In order to develop a programmatic approach to the Trust Fund&rsquo;s engagement in the Makran region, ESCAP has commissioned a consultancy to provide an up-to-date analysis of the Tsunami Early Warning Systems (TEWS) for the NWIO, highlighting the areas requiring further cooperation at regional, national and local levels.</p> <p>The hereby presented Synthesis Report is the result from a review of literature and reports relating to the TEWS for the countries of the NWIO. The contextual analysis of the TEWS in the region has been refined and updated by interviews with key stakeholders relevant to TEWS for the Makran region and through participation at the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (ICG/IOTWMS) session in Teheran, Islamic Republic of Iran (February 27-28th).</p>
