*Should I stay or should I go now?*
*Why communication is the critical component in disaster prevention.*

Even with the global sharing of data and sophisticated satellite systems
that can flash messages around in the world in seconds – why do early
warning systems still fail?

It’s because information is only useful if you understand what it means and
know what actions and decisions to make.

Even the most sophisticated models and advanced early warning systems will
be rendered ineffective if information isn’t communicated clearly, timely,
and the recipients don’t know what to do with it. The same applies to
COVID-19 and other hazards risk reduction: the ability to successfully
communicate natural hazard forecasts to at risk communities and
stakeholders is crucial.

Different government responses towards COVID-19 demonstrate that
communicating risk, clarity of roles and information, and the inclusion of
the full range of multi-disciplinary experts who understand people’s
behavioural drivers in a crisis and their social settings is critical in
designing and implementing effective risk communication frameworks.
