The Asia-Pacific region is known to be the worst disaster affected region in the world, representing 72 percent of all disaster fatalities during 1970 to 2011 globally. Seventy-six per cent of tsunamis that have occurred took place in the Pacific Ocean and its marginal seas. The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake (GEJE) tsunami were two of the worst tsunamis in recent years. Despite progress make in seismological and tsunami science in the last 50 years, these tsunamis caused devastating damage in the countries they hit.


Since 2005, UNDP has been working with national governments in 163 disaster-prone countries on disaster risk management, including disaster risk assessment, disaster risk governance and mainstreaming, disaster preparedness and early warning, and disaster recovery.


In 2017, UNDP’s Disaster Risk Reduction Team based in Bangkok Regional Hub launched a regional project ‘Strengthening School Preparedness for Tsunami in the Asia Pacific Region’, and currently in the process of second phase preparation. The main objective of this project is to mitigate the impact of tsunamis by enhancing school preparedness in high risk communities in 18 countries in the Asia Pacific region.


The second phase of the project Partnerships for Strengthening School Preparedness for Tsunamis in the Asia Pacific region (Tsunami Project Phase II) emphasises on institutionalising disaster preparedness in schools for sustainability beyond the projects. The Tsunami Phase II project aims to fill the gaps, scale-up and integrate the preparedness programme and drills into the school curriculum and systems. Several outputs are envisioned:


  • School preparedness and awareness programmes for tsunamis institutionalised in project countries;
  • School preparedness and awareness programmes for tsunamis replicated and adapted in more schools in the Asia-Pacific region; and
  • Capacity of data collection enhanced in the countries requiring support.


Malaysia is one of the countries where the Tsunami Project Phase II is being carried out, in partnership between UNDP and the National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA).


To strengthen the institutionalisation and replication of school preparedness and awareness for tsunamis, UNDP is recruiting a local consultant to develop a module for Training of Trainers for school preparedness for tsunamis and to execute a pilot Training of Trainers session.
