Early warning systems are a major component in disaster risk reduction.
Despite forecasting system advances, hydro-meteorological and geo-hazards
continue to claim thousands of lives, while wreaking irreparable damage
upon homes, businesses and critical infrastructure.

Research advancements have rapidly improved data observation, modelling and
the analysis of natural hazards forecasting for disaster risk reduction.
Unfortunately, many of these advances have not been tailored to benefit
communities at risk. Forecasts are only as good as the language and method
used in communicating to affected communities.

Key issues to discuss:

   - Policy and political issues – How to ensure an end-to-end early
   warning system that covers both vertical and horizontal institutions to
   achieve risk-informed sustainable development
   - *Ensemble based guidance – * Products and the use of ensemble-based
   guidance in day-to-day forecasting by meteorologists
   - Decision making – Opportunities to use medium-range ensemble
   forecasting to support decision making to help communities
