Abstract: The paper describes how a fully valid tsunami evacuation plan is generated, implemented and maintained in three stages. As such an end-to-end framework of interlinked tasks and procedures is proposed which, at the end, is applicable by any stakeholder involved independently whether this stakeholder has appropriate calculation tools available or not. The evacuation plan itself is based on two input parameters: tsunami wave height and arrival time which should be the output of scientific simulations which, in turn, simulate realistic scenarios applicable at any shoreline location. The simulation had been tested at several test sites throughout the Mediterranean Sea.
