Progress on early warning in a pandemic

CREWS, the specialized Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems Initiative, is a unique climate action programme that helps saves lives, livelihoods and assets in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) — the world’s most vulnerable countries. 2020 will be remembered as a year that revealed some important truths for a young CREWS Initiative — but ones that should embolden us. As this 2020 Annual Report shows, there was progress in our work and achievements. 2020 also marked a new phase for us. First generation projects evolved and expanded while new activities began elsewhere. By year-end, CREWS projects covered 57 countries globally. We continued to contribute our expertise and experience to existing partnerships, while establishing new ones to help save lives. Looking ahead, our vision for the next five years is captured in an operational plan to reach more countries and enhance the effectiveness of current operations.
