Community Early Warning Systems: Guiding Principles

This guide aims to provide an overview of successful practices from the field for the disaster risk reduction/management practitioner interested in EWS. It presents guiding principles that will build a strong foundation for the design or strengthening of EWS at any level. It is not meant to be an operational guide but is more of a strategic one that insists on asking the right questions and exploring all perspectives prior to deciding whether or not early warning is the appropriate tool for a given context. For this section emphasis should be placed on reviewing Guiding principle 3: “Insist on multi-hazard EWS” and Guiding principle 4: “Systematically include Vulnerability”
