Integrated development of early warning systems: Local Flood Early Warning System – LFEWS
An affordable and community-based approach with high potential for transferability. Simple and effective local flood early warning systems (LFEWS) allow local authorities and municipalities improve their ability to predict and warn flooding events and to respond more effectively at the water catchment area level. Through the successful implementation of LFEWS in Philippines, Vietnam, and Mozambique GIZ has demonstrated that people-centred early warning systems, which incorporate local knowledge and capacities, and have been planned, tested and are maintained together with the population, work most effectively.
