Course purpose

The course offers to build the capacity of professionals to design, manage, evaluate and undertake improvements in people centered end-to-end early warning systems for hydro-meteorological & geological hazards and extreme events associated with climate change and variability. it builds upon ADPC's two decades of experiences in disaster management, facilitating regional cooperation and building capacities of disaster management institutions at all government levels, disaster management practitioners and communities. it extends to a decade of experience in institutionalizing weather and climate information applications for disaster mitigation and recently, in the implementation of Indian Ocean and South East Asia end-to-end early warning system for tsunami and hydro-meteorological hazards. Upon completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • understand operational mechanisms and procedures for the prediction, forecasting, monitoring and response to warning;
  • design end-to-end early warning systems for hydro-meteorological/geological hazards including, action planning for disaster preparedness, emergency management and social response with respect to early warning;
  • develop tools for early warning audits, identify current gaps in existing early warning systems and put in place enhanced people-centered early warning system with addressing the "last-mile" users;
  • harmonization of early warning system and disaster mitigation for effective disaster risk reduction;
  • develop tools to incorporate emerging new generation of climate prediction technologies.

Course objective

The main course objective is to enhance the capacity of participating professionals and institutions, to effectively develop skills in process design of multi-hazard end-to-end early warning systems, and mitigate the effects of events related to hydro-meteorological and geological phenomena. Upon completion the participants will learn how to;

  • undertake risk assessment and design of multi-hazard end-to-end early warning systems for disaster risk reduction
  • effectively integrate scientific and technical inputs into early warning dissemination and communication system
  • develop strategies to institutionalize early warning systems into the process cycle of disaster risk reduction and development planning, emergency response, and preparedness activities
  • develop risk communication strategies & communication technologies
  • interpret and translate scientific information products into user friendly formats and prepare & communicate tailor made early warning information products to elicit response format risk communities
  • design and implement community based early warning systems that are people centered and that can effectively contribute to the risk management process/ risk reduction
  • evaluate and introduce public education and training programme for the community based early warning systems
  • apply emerging new generation climate prediction technologies for anticipating and managing disaster risks associated with climate change & variability

Training strategy

The course includes theoretical and practical sessions. An interdisciplinary team of experienced practitioners and exports provide a balanced teaching approach and methodologies to the sessions with theory, practical exercises, interactive and participate lectures, group discussions, presentation, classroom exercised, work sheets, case studies and selected examples, individual/ group assignment and presentations, application of tools, site visit and instructional games. There is an attendance requirement in this course. Certificate of Completion will be awarded to participants on successful completion of the training program.
