Narok County Flood Early Warning Communication Strategy

A fundamental precondition for flood disaster risk reduction at the county level is the availability of well-functioning early warning communication systems that deliver accurate, reliable, and understandable warnings, in a timely manner, to authorities, operational disaster managers and...

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...

Communicating complex forecasts: an analysis of the approach in Nepal's flood early warning system

Early warning systems have the potential to save lives and improve resilience. However, barriers and challenges remain in disseminating and communicating early warning information to institutional decision-makers, community members and individuals at risk, including unequal access, insufficient...

EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS FRAMEWORK

This National Early Warning System Framework document presents the many aspects, elements, challenges and key strategies of Early Warning for Guyana. It outlines the context and rationale for Early Warning, as well as presenting various approaches to Early Warning Systems, national capacities and...

Technology justice and the communication of flood early warnings

This poster was presented at the American Geophysics Union 2018. Early warning systems are essential tools in the flood management cycle for saving lives and livelihoods. Whilst there are four recognized essential components of early warning systems – Risk Knowledge, Monitoring and Warning,...

Red Cross Red Crescent good practices in early warning

For the International Federation and National Societies worldwide, community-based early warning is an essential element of disaster risk reduction. Early warning helps to mitigate loss of life and property and to reduce economic losses. By strengthening early warning systems, we help to ensure...

The Flood Early Warning Early Action System

Half of Indonesia’s population of approximately 141 million people lives on the island of Java. It is the most populous island on Earth. Java is home to several river systems, of which the most significant are the Citarum river and the Bengawan Solo. Due to changing climate and environmental...

Developing Early Warning Systems: A Checklist

This document is an outcome of The Third International Conference on Early Warning(EWC III) held in Bonn, Germany from 27-29 March 2006 developed in order to inform and draw upon discussions and practical examples raised during the conference, and to support the implementation of early warning...

Establishing Community Based Early Warning System- PRACTITIONER'S HANDBOOK

This handbook is helpful for the practitioners, facilitators to recognise and implement the community based approaches for the establishment of early warning system. This handbook is significant in providing the first comprehensive attempt in Nepal to provide a guide for the establishment of...

GUIDELINES ON EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS AND APPLICATION OF NOWCASTING AND WARNING OPERATIONS

These guidelines are prepared with focus on the role of NMHSs in reducing the impact of disasters. The development of early warning systems is seen as part of the operational responsibility of NMHSs. The essential elements of such systems and in particular, forecasting, formatting, presenting and...

Community-based early warning systems for flood risk mitigation in Nepal

This paper focuses on the use of community-based early warning systems for flood resilience in Nepal. The first part of the work outlines the evolution and current status of these community-based systems, highlighting the limited lead times currently available for early warning. The second part...

Missing Voices: Experiences of floods and early warning from marginalized women in Nepal and Peru

This report documents first person experiences of flood, disaster risk and early warning of vulnerable and marginalised women in Peru and Nepal. We capture the perspectives of marginalised women including those who are elderly, those with disabilities, single mothers, transgender women, women who...

Enhancing Flood Early Warning Systems in Nepal

The Hindu Kush Himalayan region is extremely vulnerable to various types of water-induced disasters, particularly floods and landslides. Due to its fragile geology, rugged terrain, and monsoon patterns, Nepal is prone to floods, landslides, and glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs). Around 80% of...

Indigenous knowledge and early warning systems in the Lower Shire Valley in Malawi

The overall objective of this study is to understand and document the indigenous early warning signs for most common hazards (i.e. floods, droughts and dry spells) in the Lower Shire Valley. The study explores what indigenous early warning signs are available within communities, how these are...

Flood Early Warning Systems in Nepal: A Gendered Perspective

This report presents the findings from Nepal, but the findings are relevant for those working in the HKH region and beyond. Through such studies ICIMOD aims to sensitize those involved on the need to integrate gender into flood early warning systems and to develop policies that encourage the...

Range-dependent thresholds for global flood early warning

Early warning systems (EWS) for river flooding are strategic tools for effective disaster risk management in many world regions. When driven by ensemble Numerical Weather Predictions (NWP), flood EWS can provide skillful streamflow forecasts beyond the monthly time scale in large river basins....

Enhancing Community Based Early Warning Systems in Nepal with Flood Forecasting Using Local and...

Operationalizing effective Flood Early Warning Systems (EWS) in developing countries like Nepal poses numerous challenges, with complex topography and geology, sparse network of river and rainfall gauging stations and diverse socio-economic conditions. Despite these challenges, simple real-time...

Improving accuracy, timeliness and access to flood early warning

Early warning is a key factor in building flood resilience. Systems that provide early warning messages not only allow communities to prepare and respond to flood events, they can also capture valuable information on the flooding process itself. Learning from flood events is vital to empower...

Gender Transformative Early Warning Systems: Experiences from Nepal and Peru

Early warning is integral to disaster preparedness, which is central to building the resilience of households and communities to disaster. Effective early warning systems (EWS) are people centred, ensuring appropriate, applicable, and timely early warning reaches the last mile, including the...

Gender Transformative Early Warning Systems: Nepal

Early warning systems (EWS) that do not explicitly consider gender are likely to increase the marginalization or vulnerability of marginalized gender groups. Research in Nepal explores the interaction between gender and flood early warning systems, extracting key findings, and distilling a...
