This study contains an update of the original Report on Regional Needs and Recommendations: Tsunami Early Warning Systems (TEWS) on the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. The study aims to guide the policy and programming of the Fund as well as other initiatives in this area of work. There has been significant progress in particular in establishment of tsunami watch provider services in several countries in the region. Most initiatives to develop tsunami warning in the region have been adopting a multi to hazard approach, together with other related hazards. In this regard, early warning can be considered an important form of climate change adaptation, since climate change is expected to increase the frequency and severity of natural disasters.
