As a contribution to the building of training to support the communication of tsunami risk to the public, the IOC of UNESCO has developed the TsunamiTeacher Information and Resource Toolkit. The Toolkit brings together a wealth of new and existing information on tsunamis into a single, reliable, and verified global resource that is widely accessible to people, groups and governments around the world. TsunamiTeacher aims to build awareness and capacity to respond and mitigate the impact of tsunamis through the sharing of knowledge, research, and best practices.
