Integrating early warning early action within disaster law in Africa

The African continent is uniquely vulnerable to a variety of disasters, including droughts, floods, and locust infestations, with climate change intensifying these risks. The implementation of early warning early action (EWEA) strategies within disaster management laws is critical for enhancing resilience and reducing the impact of these disasters.

This case study examines how South Sudan and Malawi, with the collaboration with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), are leading the way in incorporating EWEA into their legal and regulatory frameworks to mitigate the impact of disasters specific to their contexts.
