The Indian Ocean Consortium is an initiative of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) System to support the national components of the Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning and Mitigation System (IOTWS).
The consortium of ISDR system partners are providing an immediate package of advisory support to the governments of the Indian Ocean tsunami-affected countries. The coordinated package aims at assisting up to 10 governments, initially, in planning and building capacity for tsunami early warning and response systems. The expected results of this project are to ensure that the basic needs of tsunami-affected populations are efficiently met.
This is a new feature, part of CIDA's efforts towards increasing transparency. Information will only be available for projects approved after October 15, 2011. For other projects, information on expected results is usually included in the description.
