NZ Report to the Intergovernmental Coordination Group of the Pacific Tsunami Warning & Miti NZ Report to the Intergovernmental Coordination Group of the Pacific Tsunami Warning & Miti

In April 2015, a New Zealand delegation participated in an International Tsunami Symposium in Hawaii to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Pacific Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (PTWS), and a subsequent meeting of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group (ICG) of the PTWS. The ICG was hosted by the USA and attended by 107 participants from 28 member states of the PTWS. The New Zealand delegation was made up of staff from the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management (MCDEM) and GNS Science. They presented a report to the ICG which outlined tsunami-related work and activities in New Zealand since 2013. As well as outlining New Zealand’s tsunami response procedures and reporting on recent responses, the report also describes activities in relation to tsunami risk management in New Zealand since 2013. The ICG meeting recognised the leadership of Dr Ken Gledhill of GNS Science who chaired the PTWS over the last four years. At the end of the meeting Dr Gledhill handed the Chair over to Filomena Nelson (NDMO Samoa). Dr Gledhill was subsequently elected as the Chair of the inter-sessional working group for Tsunami Detection, Warning and Dissemination, and David Coetzee (MCDEM) was re-elected as Chair of the inter-sessional working group on Disaster Management, Preparedness and Risk Reduction.
