First Regional Summit of National Hydrological and Meteorological Services and Risk and Disaster Risk and Emergency Management Systems
The Sendai Framework, through its Target G, aims “to substantially increase the availability of and access to multi‑hazard early warning systems and disaster risk information and assessments to the people by 2030”1 .
Progress towards Target G enables governments to assess their availability of, and access to, Multi-hazard Early Warning Systems (MHEWS), along with necessary governance arrangements for its implementation, contributing to the overall efforts in implementing the Sendai Framework. Early Warning Systems are a proven, effective, and feasible climate adaptation measure, that saves lives and provides at least a tenfold return on investment.
The WMO State of the Climate 2021 Report shows that extreme weather, such as floods, droughts, heatwaves and storms, led to hundreds of billions of dollars of economic losses and wreaked a heavy toll on human lives and wellbeing
