Project ID 230RAS2005

While a powerful earthquake in the Makran region could generate destructive tsunami capable of inundating coastlines within 20 minutes, most coastal communities in the region are still not prepared to respond effectively of a near-field tsunami threat. This is the phase-2 project following the achievement of Phase 1: enhancement of the scientific understanding of the MSZ and the strengthen national warning chains and SOP. Phase 2 aims to enhance the hazard and inundation mapping capabilities and strengthen capacities in tsunami evacuation planning in line with the near-field tsunamis threat for self-protection at the community level in India, Iran, Pakistan Oman and United Arab Emirates.
