Climate early warning system feasibility report: early warning systems and hazard prediction

Source(s):  United Nations Environment Programme - Headquarters (UNEP)

This research examines the feasibility of creating a global early warning system for climate change, the CLIM-WARN system, which purpose is to provide timely and actionable warnings to institutions, businesses, governments and the general public about the imminence of climate related extreme events. CLIM-WARN focuses on hydrometeorological hazards such as heat waves, droughts, floods and wildfires.

The purpose of the report is: (i) to review early warning systems for hydrometeorological hazards, indicating availability, quality and accessibility, and gaps; and (ii) to assess current scientific ability to model hazards on the short-term and medium to long-term timescales. It also focuses on early warning systems for famines and hurricanes/cyclones.
