Multi-hazard Early Warning Systems: A Checklist

This checklist is a key outcome of the first Multi-hazard Early Warning Conference, which was organized by the International Network for Multi-hazard Early Warning Systems (IN-MHEWS) 2 from 22 to 23 May 2017 in Cancún, Mexico. Through the lens of the Sendai Framework, it incorporates the acknowledged benefits of multi-hazard early warnings systems, disaster risk information and enhanced risk assessments. Following the first Multi-hazard Early Warning Conference, a consultation process among the IN-MHEWS partners further refined the checklist, resulting in the present document. It is anticipated that this checklist will be updated as technologies develop, advances in multi-hazard early warning systems are made and feedback from the users is received. The checklist, which is structured around the four key elements of early warning systems, aims to be a simple list of the main components and actions to which national governments, community organizations and partners within and across all sectors can refer when developing or evaluating early warning systems. It is not intended to be a comprehensive design manual, but instead a practical, non-technical reference tool to ensure that the major elements of an effective early warning system are in place.
