Integrating early warning early action within disaster legislation in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific faces significant challenges due to its susceptibility to disasters such as cyclones, floods and earthquakes with the impact of climate change further exacerbating these. The integration of early warning early action (EWEA) within domestic disaster legislation is crucial for enhancing preparedness and mitigating the impact of disasters.

This case study explores how countries like Bangladesh and Timor-Leste, with the support of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and IFRC Disaster Law are pioneering in embedding EWEA into their legal frameworks, setting a precedent for disaster risk governance.
