Type: Workshop
Location: Virtual
Start Date: 18 Feb, 2022 08:00 AM
Timezone: GMT+03:00 Africa/Nairobi

The Eastern Africa region is prone to multiple and recurring disasters of varied magnitudes; from droughts to floods, pest infestations to food insecurity, landslides, animal and human health related emergencies. Most of the hazards inducing disasters are hydro meteorological in nature and can be predicted in reasonable range of confidence. Developing early warning systems at regional and national levels enables people and communities to prepare for, and respond to disasters and prevent/mitigate risks.

This workshop aims at building and promoting understanding of risk knowledge to better manage disaster risks at regional and national level and, enhance collaboration and, co-ordination among national and regional stakeholders on multi-hazard early warning systems and early actions.
