The Second Multi-Hazard Early Warning Conference (MHEWC-II)

Geneva, Switzerland

13 - 14 May 2019

MHEWC-II aims to demonstrate to countries how the availability of and access to multi-hazard early warning and risk information can be improved. Organized by the International Network for Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems (IN-MHEWS), in conjunction with the 2019 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, its purpose is to highlight the role that national governance plays in implementing and sustaining multi-hazard early warning systems, taking into account all risk dimensions, respective regulatory frameworks, policies and institutional partnerships to ensure that warnings are received, understood and trigger action by the intended audience.
