Purpose,Objectives and Scope

Society as a whole is increasingly exposed and vulnerable to natural disasters because extreme weather events, exacerbated by climate change, are becoming more frequent and longer. In this context, effective delivery of early warnings to the public can foster risk awareness and greatly reduce the impact of natural hazards due to increased self-protection behaviors.

The aim of this activity is twofold. First, to assess state-of-art communication systems, standards, and methodologies related to the generation and the public sharing of early warnings. Second, to propose a set of best practices and guidelines in order to implement an effective early warning system that can be deployed at multiple geographic scales, from local communities up to the national and also transboundary level.
