Slide3: 

International Round-Table Dialogue on Earthquake and Tsunami Risks in Southeast Asia and the South China Sea Region 27 – 28 April 2006, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Objectives: 

Objectives 1. To assess earthquake and tsunami and vulnerability in Southeast Asia and the South China Sea region 2. To review the level of preparedness and mitigation measures in place and identify gaps/weaknesses 3. To identify opportunities to strengthen regional and international partnerships, networking and capacity building

Attendees :: 

Attendees : Countries : Australia Bangladesh Cambodia China India Indonesia Pakistan Malaysia Maldives Myanmar Pakistan Philippines Singapore Thailand Vietnam Tsunami warning centre and disaster preparedness organization: Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) University of Hawaii Sea Level Center (UHSLC) USA Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) Seismological and tsunami experts from: Canada Northern Ireland Russian Federation Turkey USA

Attendees :: 

IOC of UNESCO and its Tsunami Unit International Tsunami Information Centre (ITIC) Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Pacific Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (ICG/PTWS) Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (ICG/IOTWS) GLOSS Group (sea-level) Experts Attendees :

Result of Round-Table Dialogue : 

Result of Round-Table Dialogue Action Plan

Action Plan: 

Action Plan 1. Continue the significant progress on assessing earthquake and tsunami and vulnerability in Southeast Asia and the South China Sea region through the support of national and international research initiatives including historical and paleotsunami assessments. 2. Although substantial progress has been made in some countries with regard to tsunami preparedness and mitigation, there are still some gaps and weaknesses, and the countries within the region should continue efforts to address these shortcomings and to raise the general level of preparedness. 3. Build on the regional partnerships that have been developed and strengthen international partnerships through memberships and active participation in ICG/PTWS and/or ICG/IOTWS.

Slide9: 

4. Ensure long term sustainability by implementing an end-to-end framework in a multi-hazard context. 5. Urge ICG/PTWS to continue to focus on establishing regional TWS capabilities to cover the South China Sea region. 6. Countries in the region to improve sea level coverage in the South China Sea. 7. Promote the free and open exchange of real time seismic and sea level data and information to be used for national tsunami warning and event monitoring. 8. Southeast Asia and the South China Sea region should utilize or build on the PTWS, IOTWS and other existing organizations and institutions in order to achieve durability. 9. Request each country in the region to provide a 7x24 Tsunami Focal Point to the ICG/PTWS Secretariat, ITIC, to receive tsunami warnings issued by the JMA and PTWC.

Slide10: 

10. Countries in the Southeast Asia and the South China Sea region should continue to improve their instrumentation and provide the resulting data and information in real time to PTWC and the JMA. 11. Request the ITIC continue to provide advice on the establishment of National Warning Systems, including especially public awareness and education. 12. Request the WMO and its Member National Meteorological Services continue to support the IOC through warning products and data exchange through its Global Telecommunication System (GTS), and to ensure that the GTS links are adequate for such purposes. 13. Urge capacity building organizations, such as ADPC, to continue their efforts in the region to reduce risk from all disasters, including tsunami. 14. Encourage participation in the PTWS Tsunami Exercise on May 17, 2006. 15. Recommend a follow-up meeting to be held in a year’s time to report on progress of this Action Plan.

Synergy with ICG/IOTWS-V:
