This policy brief highlights key actions and recommendations on improving the efficiency of early warning system based on the experience of Zurich Flood Resilience Program. Early warning is a key factor in building flood resilience. Systems that provide early warning messages not only allow communities to prepare and respond to flood events, they can also capture valuable information on the flooding process itself. Learning from flood events is vital to empower communities and local government to prioritise development investments in flood resilience building actions.
