Description

Background

There are complexities in managing multiple agencies and offering a common platform to manage all-hazards all-media alerting and reporting. Possibly the harder problem may be the social elements. These can be overcome through the use of globally accepted interoperable and standardized technology such as the Common Alerting Protocol-enabled Sahana Alerting/Messaging Module. The Free and Open Source Sahana system has matured since its inception in 2005. The lecture discusses how the Sahana system may be integrated with the DMC’s Call Center and Interactive Voice Response system.

Making emergency communication effective

The main talk by LIRNEasia Senior Research Fellow Nuwan Waidyanatha on “making emergency communication effective” will complement the opening presentation by the Director General of the Sri Lanka Disaster Management Center on the Sri Lankan tsunami warning system. It will highlight how the DMC can better perform its role in emergency communication and coordination.
