Early Warning Systems for All

Early warnings on climate change impact which includes slow onset changes and shifts in climate such as precipitation and temperature patterns, as well as degradation in ecosystem and resource quality, is rarely understood, collected or shared with all. Intrinsic to this problem is the lack of monitoring, collecting and sharing information locally and feeding to the decision-making and scientific knowledge to respond to early warnings.  

Specific areas:

    • Translating climate science to useable information for all including local administration and communities through interactive Decision Support System
    • Tools for last mile connectivity, communication, dissemination, and local actions
    • Citizen science and crowdsourcing for climate-induced hazard early warning system
    • Early warning systems with alternate mobile technology
