Tuvalu

Early warning systems helping to build resilience in Tuvalu

1 May 2019, SPREP

Up until 2016, there were no forecast modelling tools available to help small islands have an understanding of the possible impact of waves. Since then, new software was developed specifically for Tuvalu, allowing them to provide and predict wave heights for all nine islands during a major wave event up to three to five days in advance.
