Global imperative for early warning, early action system
Extreme events borne of the climate crisis have risen at an alarmingly pace in recent times. Drought and heat stress afflict most continents, floods are submerging large parts of South Sudan and Pakistan and, in the past three years, desert locusts have ravaged Eastern Africa.
At just 1.2°C – the current rate of global warming – we are already witnessing the destruction of climate change. Never before has the need for early warning-early action systems been so pressing.
