The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER) from the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) invite partners and stakeholder to share good practices on lessons learned on Multi-hazard Early Warning Systems (MHEWS). These will contribute to the development of the Words into Action (WiA) guide on MHEWS that will provide practical advice on MHEWS in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The WiA will guide governments, stakeholders and partners on how to institutionalize, operate, monitor, and strengthen people-centred inclusive approaches for multi-hazard early warning systems which enable early action.
This Call aims at collecting experiences, lessons learned and key aspects of existing MHEWS to inform the design of new or strengthening of existing EWS. More specifically, the Call will allow compiling different experiences, in terms of policy changes, research advances and practices that highlight key components of MHEWS.
Further information to the Call for Good Practices can be found here.
