International Network for Multi‐Hazard Early Warning Systems (IN‐MHEWS) and Global Meteo-Alert System

This initiative, launched in implementation of Goal 7 of the Sendai Framework () aims to promote the strengthening or introduction of multi-hazard warning systems in Small Island Developing States to protect life and property in the most efficient and effective manner possible (partners: WMO, WHO, UNDP, IOC/UNESCO, UNESCAP, UNISDR, UNOOSA/UN‐SPIDER, IFRC, ITU, GFZ, and GIZ). Risk-informed warnings disseminated by competent national authorities for the most vulnerable places and populations with high exposure in extreme weather and climate conditions should be aggregated and scaled-up into a global alarm system covering ocean and continental areas for building resilience in the fields of maritime safety and sustainable coastal development (Partners: WMO, IOC/UNESCO, UNISDR).
