Warning Briefing Note: Multi-hazard Early Warning Systems

For warning systems to be most comprehensive they need to be multi-hazard and operate across many stakeholders to integrate hazard and risk knowledge.

This Warnings Briefing Note, supported by the Global Disaster Preparedness Center/IFRC and produced by UCL Warning Research Center, focuses on building warnings for multiple hazards. It covers state-of-the-art, key issues, examples, resources and recommendations to aid those working on policy and practice.
