GloFAS User Community and GloFAS 4.0 characteristics
On the first day, two sessions were specifically dedicated to discussing GloFAS, its benefits and its applications. The presentations also covered the forthcoming GloFAS v4.0 updates and how they will improve the current system. The organising team also emphasised the growing number of registered users – which has grown more than fivefold since its operational release in 2018 - within the GloFAS portal was emphasised. This shows an increasing interest and confidence in its usefulness.
The sessions provided a comprehensive overview of the system’s importance in the early warning ecosystem. Likewise, the amount of precious feedback received from the users will contribute to setting the priorities for future developments.
