UN boosts Support on World Tsunami Day to raise awareness for critical poor countries

DILI, 5 november, 2021 (TATOLI)- The United Nations boots support World Tsunami Day to raise awareness for critical poor countries to save lives from the world’s tsunami hazard.

“We can build on the progress made from better outreach to tsunami-affected communities around the world to the inclusion of the Tsunami Program in the United Nations Marine Science Decade for Sustainable Development, “The United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres said in a statement cited from the UN site.

However, the risks remain immense. Rising sea levels caused by climate emergencies will further exacerbate the destructive power of tsunamis. We must limit warming to 1.5°C over pre-industrial averages and invest at scale in the resilience of coastal communities.

“Science and international cooperation, as well as preparedness and early action, must be at the heart of our efforts to save lives from tsunamis and other hazards. Boosting support to developing countries and improving detection and early warning is critical”

“In the face of increasingly complex global crises, we need to be better prepared. Let us work to reduce tsunami risk, deliver on the Sendai Framework, and together build resilience against all disasters,” he said.

It is known that the countries that are most affected and caused lots of fatalities are Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand as well. People were also killed by the tsunami in Somalia, Myanmar, the Maldives, Malaysia, Tanzania, Seychelles, Bangladesh, South Africa, and Kenya. 18 countries in India ocean sustained damage from the tsunami.

The zone where the earthquake of December 26, 2004, occurred lies on the seismic boundary of three large plates of the earth’s crust. The Indian and Australian plates have been colliding with the Eurasian plate for millions of years.

It is called that on 1, March 2005 the death toll was approaching 300,000 people. Over 5 million people were affected by the tsunamis and well over a million were left homeless. Of the Fatalities, almost half were in Indonesia.
