Abstract
    The Second Session of the Intergovernmental Coordination Group for the Tsunami and Other Coastal Hazards Warning System for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (ICG/CARIBE-EWS II), was held in Cumana, Venezuela, 12-14 March 2007. The meeting was attended by nearly 60 participants from 11 countries in the Caribbean Region and three organizations. The ICG reviewed the progress made during the intersessional period, adopted revised Terms of Reference for its four Working Groups and urged Member States to nominate their Tsunami Warning Focal Points (TWFP) and Tsunami National Contact (TNC) by the end of 2007 at the latest. The group planned for two regional workshops for Tsunami Warning Focal Points (TWFP) and one regional Symposium in conjunction with the 10th IOCARIBE Session. The ICG recommended the adoption of the Communications Plan developed for the Caribbean and Adjacent regions by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) and adopted the Implementation Plan as a tool for establishing and monitoring the CARIBE-EWS. It further agreed to establish an initial core system for detecting and verifying tsunamis with the CARIBE-EWS by the end of 2008 and actively plan to take over the full responsibility for the system with a Caribbean Tsunami Warning Centre in the region at least by 2010.
