Project ID 549INT2007

This project is designed to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable coastal communities in North-East Atlantic, Mediterranean Tsunami Warning System (NEAMTWS) countries to tsunamis and other sea level-related hazards. At the end of the project selected communities will have improved understanding of tsunami and sea-level related risks; better communication strategies to govern sea-level related risk, recognized Tsunami Ready communities; as well as an improved framework for the sustainability of the existing Inexpensive Device for Sea Level (IDSL) Network.
