Call for Contributions - Good Practices and Lessons Learned on Early Warning Systems
The International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR) secretariat has released a new publication series
on good practices and lessons learned focussing on different topics. To facilitate knowledge sharing and the
exchange of information on early warning systems, the UN/ISDR Platform for the Promotion of Early
Warning (PPEW) is collecting good practices and lessons learned in this area with focus on the four elements
of early warning:
Risk knowledge, that is, prior knowledge of the risks faced by communities;
Monitoring and warning service;
Communications and dissemination of understandable warnings to those at risk; and
Response capability and preparedness to act by those threatened.
Maximum overall length of contributions: 2,000 – 2,500 words
Deadline: December 31, 2007.
