Is it time to devise a faster response to slow onset disasters?

5 Jan 2017, Devex

Current triggers for slow onset disasters like drought may need to be re-evaluated due to climate change. Establishing community-level baseline indicators could help identify vulnerable groups to allow quicker response. Another option is to better define "decision gates" or the moment to move from watching a situation, to a warning and finally to response.
