“What is a sociologist doing here?” An unconventional people-centered approach to improve warning implementation in the Sendai Framework for disaster risk reduction

The Sendai Framework for Disaster risk reduction 2015–2030 recommends several actions for early warning systems (EWSs). However, there is a lack of information about their means of implementation. This article used institutional ethnography to analyze the 2012–2018 implementation of a national warning system in Brazil. The author concludes that there are few multi-hazard warning systems in place and EWSs are focused on hydrometeorological hazards, mainly related to floods. The paper suggests that the Sendai Framework needs to improve access to data and information, identify views from the frontline, consider political threats and vulnerabilities, and find ways to talk about disaster risk creation processes at a larger scale.
