Indian Ocean Tsunami Information Centre (IOTIC)

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO has established the Indian Ocean Tsunami Information Centre in Jakarta (IOTIC) to increase and strengthen awareness of tsunamis and to assist in the development of the Tsunami Early Warning System in Indonesia by providing an information service.  The Centre was established with support from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

The main aim of IOTIC is to act as an Information Centre on:

  • The development and progress of TEWS in Indonesia and other Indian Ocean countries, both in the aspects of technical development of TEWS (Upstream) and community preparedness for tsunami threat (Downstream);
  • General information on tsunami, tsunami education, awareness materials, tsunami mitigation, and tsunami preparedness;
  • Information on activities, news and articles pertinent to tsunami issues.

Located in the UNESCO Office Jakarta, IOTIC focuses on the information provision through internet so can be fully accessed globally by anyone. The IOTIC website hosts tsunami-related information, materials, data, program, etc. developed by others in order to be accessible and publicly used.
