Two decades after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, UNESCO-IOC and BMKG have initiated the UNESCO IOC Global Tsunami Symposium to commemorate the two-decade anniversary.

The Symposium will take place from November 11th to 14th, 2024, in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, featuring special events such as Poster Sessions, Exhibitions, and Ignite Stages. Preceding the main symposium, on November 8th and 9th, the "International Scientific Workshop hosted by IABI in collaboration with USK-TDRMC" will be held.

The symposium aims to convene scientists, engineers, practitioners, and policymakers from around the world to discuss the state-of-the-art and the latest advances in tsunami science and engineering for enhanced tsunami disaster preparedness and mitigation. The objectives of the events are to commemorate two decades since the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, reflect on the achievements of each regional tsunami warning and mitigation system, and identify gaps, challenges, and priorities for tsunami early warning. Additionally, the event aims to identify synergies with global challenges and ensure coherence with global commitments.
