Past NEAMWAVE Exercises

Tsunami exercises in the NEAM region

The first tsunami warning and communication exercise for the North-eastern Atlantic, the Mediterranean, and Connected Seas Region (NEAMWave 12) was conducted on 27 and 28 November 2012.

During the Tenth session of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Tsunami Early Warning and Mitigation System in the North Eastern Atlantic, the Mediterranean and Connected Seas (ICG/NEAMTWS-X/3s) held from 19 to 21 November 2013 in Rome, Italy, and following the success of the first tsunami exercise, it was decided to conduct a second exercise called NEAMWave 14 in the fourth quarter of 2014 to test the readiness of the system, to maximise the participation of the Member States to the exercise and particularly to improve the participation of the respective Civil Protection Agencies (CPA).
