Sendai Framework Mid-Point

The MHEWC-III is a preparatory event of the GP2022. It is organized by the International Network for Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems (IN-MHEWS). The MHEWC-III builds on the progress and achievements of the first two conferences held in 2017 in Cancun, Mexico; and in 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland.

This year, focus will be given to early warning systems in the context of the mid-point of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The Conference will: 

  • "Take stock" of progress in the implementation of Target G of the Sendai Framework and report on latest trends in MHEWS design and results
  • Identify gaps and challenges in practice, policy and science to be addressed in future work
  • Share knowledge, lessons learned, and emerging examples of good practices
  • Initiate commitments for scaling-up action on early warnings and promote synergies and partnerships

Call for Poster Submission

The MHEWC-III invites poster submissions on early warning systems that enable early action to save lives and livelihoods. Selected posters will be showcased on the Conference website. Successful applicants will be invited to attend the poster session in person on 23 May 2022 and discuss the content of their posters with attendees during a Poster Session.
