Closing the Last Mile: People-centric Flood & Drought Early-Warning-Systems

Organizers: IDMP and APFM (WMO/GWP)
 

Content:“Early warnings and action save lives,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres said in 2022 and announced that the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) would “spearhead new action to ensure every person on Earth is protected by early warning systems within five years.” The joint WMO and Global Water Partnership (GWP) programs on flood (APFM)and drought (IDMP) management are part of the new action on Early Warning Systems (EWS) with a specific focus on making sure that the technical systems are integrated into a overall disaster policy of country and regions as well as that warnings actually turn into action when flood and droughts are happening.

Date and time: Thursday 25 August, 10:00-11:20 (CEST)
