Common Alerting Protocol Workshop
Red Cross Red Crescent

The event was held virtually on October 7, 2021
Thank you to everyone who joined us on October 7, 2021 for the virtual event to introduce the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and highlight linkages with other Early Warning Early Action (EWEA) initiatives. The workshop objectives were: 

Build a detailed understanding of the core elements of CAP and benefits of CAP enabled emergency alerting systems.

Strengthen linkages between CAP and ongoing EWEA initiatives.

Identify opportunities for NS to engage with  government and other partners for the uptake of CAP and to strengthen EWEA in their respective countries.

Members for RCRC National Societies were invited to join colleagues from IFRC, GDPC, Climate Center, fellow National Societies, and partners like Google to engage in practical training on tools to strengthen EWEA with a particular focus on the Common Alerting Protocol.

CAP helps to scale emergency alerting together with RCRC actionable messaging.
