Recommendations for implementing the CREWS initiative

Source(s):  French Network for Disaster Risk Reduction

This policy recommendation from the French Network for Disaster Risk Reduction concerns the CREWS (Climate Risk and Early Warning System) initiative. CREWS was launched in December 2015, aiming to increase access for the most vulnerable populations to Early Warning Systems (EWS) and risk information, to protect their lives and livelihood.

The French Network for DRR welcomes this initiative but regrets the lack of transparency and the exclusion of civil society in the consideration, selection and monitoring of projects funded by this initiative. The Network makes the following recommendations to policy decision makers: 

  1. Implement inclusive and rigorous governance
  2. Define a monitoring framework for funded projects
  3. Promote greater transparency and information exchange with civil society

The document was signed by the following Network members: Action Contre la Faim, CARE France, Croix-Rouge Française, Handicap International, Solidarités International, Médecins du Monde, and Groupe Urgence Réhabilitation Développement.
