Climate risk and early warning systems initiative expands its coverage

WORLD METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION (WMO)

An international initiative to improve early warning systems against extreme weather and support climate change adaptation is gaining momentum to protect more people in more places. Financing has been extended to cover the Caribbean and West African regions.


The Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) initiative, launched in 2015, has been operating in 19 countries in Africa and the Pacific. It is improving early warning systems to protect the most vulnerable populations against hazards like tropical cyclones and floods in least developed countries and small island developing states.



 



“This international initiative is reaching out to exposed populations in order to  strengthen awareness, save lives and reduce the impact of extreme weather and climate-related disasters. Early warning systems are an essential part of climate change adaptation,”” said Brigitte Collet, France’s Ambassador for Climate Change Negotiations, Renewable Energy and Climate Risk Prevention.


Ms Collet chaired a CREWS Steering Committee meeting, held on 14 June, to review ongoing activities and approve future projects.


The committee discussed the findings of a report about lessons learned from the devastating 2017 hurricane season. The final report will be published at the Americas Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reductionin Cartagena, Colombia, from June 20 to 22.
