World Tsunami Awareness Day in
Days to go:
World Tsunami Awareness Day is aimed at promoting a global understanding of tsunami threats and emphasizing the importance of preparedness, early warning systems, and resilient communities. The day provides an opportunity to share experiences, information, and best practices to help nations better prepare for and respond to tsunami disasters. In this rapidly growing world, the need for adaptation and mitigation measures is crucial in order to protect lives and livelihoods from the devastating effects of tsunamis.
The United Nations General Assembly adopted World Tsunami Awareness Day in December 2015, in response to Japan's initiative and the subsequent proposal by 142 member States. For Americans, the day serves as a significant reminder of the 1964 Alaskan Earthquake and Tsunami, which devastated parts of Alaska, British Columbia, California, and Hawaii and resulted in more than 130 lives lost.
World Tsunami Awareness Day is observed through events and activities that highlight the importance of tsunami preparedness and prompt evacuation procedures, such as workshops, exhibitions, and community drills. These events are organized by various stakeholders, including government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and educational institutions, in order to raise public awareness of the potential risks of tsunamis and the effective mitigation measures. World Tsunami Awareness Day is observed on November 5th.
