Why we're doing tsunami drills in 90 schools across 18 countries in Asia and the Pacific

Six years on from the Great East Japan Earthquake, the Government of Japan has committed funding to UNDP to improve disaster risk information and carry out tsunami-awareness programmes in schools across the Asia-Pacific region.

To reduce the loss of lives associated with tsunamis, support from Japan will enable UNDP to help strengthen early warning and disaster preparedness in 18 countries included in UNDP’s ‘5-10-50’ initiative: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Fiji, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor Leste, Tonga, Vanuatu and Viet Nam.
