About World Tsunami Awareness Day

In 2019, the World Tsunami Awareness Day will promote Target (d) of the "Sendai Seven Campaign" which focuses on reducing disaster damage to critical infrastructure and disruption of basic services.

By the year 2030, an estimated 50 per cent of the world's population will live in coastal areas exposed to flooding, storms and tsunamis.

Investing in resilient infrastructure, early warning systems, and education is critical to saving people and protecting their assets against tsunami risk in the future.

Support the 2019 #BuildToLast and spread the word about World Tsunami Awareness Day!

Main hashtags: #TsunamiDay #BuildToLast
