Globally, 53% of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS) report that they cannot provide effective early warning services (EWS) due to a lack of capacity and/or capability.
This Conference will be an opportunity for Members and stakeholders including ‘Big Tech’, the wider private sector, other UN Agencies, and funding partners, to play a part in further exploring the global EWS ‘value cycle’ within the context of current and future user needs, the UN Secretary General’s 5-year challenge, the relevant outcomes of the 75th session of WMO Executive Council (2022) and the four components:
- Observing and monitoring infrastructure;
- Data processing and forecasting systems architecture;
- Warning and informing’ dissemination systems and ‘last-mile’ communication mechanisms;
- Insufficient institutional support at the national level to sustain effective operations, including the education and training of staff.
To explore the global early warning system value cycle and develop strategic partnerships in support of a coordinated action plan for the UN global early warning initiative for climate adaptation: early warnings for all.
