The role of early warning early action in minimizing loss and damage

This paper for loss and damage policy makers and negotiators outlines how early warning early action (EWEA) can contribute to improving communities’ resilience in the face of rising risks.

EWEA must be holistically and effectively designed and implemented; take a locally led, people-centered, and inclusive approach; be sustainably governed with clear roles, accountability, and coordination across stakeholders; be strategically embedded within a wider disaster risk management portfolio; and be supported by appropriate and complementary investments in risk reduction and sustainable development over the medium and long term.
