dc.description.abstractSince 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 and to elaborate recommendations on strategic areas of regional cooperation between ESCAP and IOC-UNESCO and other key stakeholders to strengthen the TEWS for the Makran.&nbsp;<br><br> <p>The hereby presented Recommendation Note has been developed based on the results from a preceding study (&bdquo;Tsunami Early Warning Systems in the countries of the North West Indian Ocean Region with focus on India, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Pakistan, and Oman&rdquo; - see separate Synthesis Report) regarding the status quo and existing gaps of TEWS in the NWIO countries, the discussions and interviews held during the NWIO Working Group (NWIO-WG) meeting of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (ICG/IOTWMS) in Tehran, Iran (Islamic Republic of) on 27th / 28th February as well as the outcomes from an analytical workshop organized by ESCAP and ICG/IOTWMS on 1st of March (Annex 1-3).&nbsp;</p>
