People Centred Early Warning Systems

This report by the IFRC and the Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems Initiative (CREWS) looks at National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies’ (National Societies) on-going work linked to people-centred early warning systems, anticipatory action, and forecast-based financing (FbF) approaches.

It focuses on National Society initiatives in Nepal, Malawi and the Pacific and offers recommendations on the role other National Societies can play in early warning systems in their own contexts.
