Early Warning and Disaster Preparedness

Road ahead closed

Climate change leads to more severe natural disasters and extreme weather events; they are also becoming more frequent in comparison to previous years. The impact of these changes is felt most acutely in poorer countries, creating real problems in sustainable development. At the same time, unsustainable development exacerbates the extent of damage and losses. A combination of early warning systems and disaster reduction is thus being seen more and more by decision-makers at all levels as a cornerstone of prevention strategy. adelphi develops methods of vulnerability and risk analysis which can ensure best-possible public prevention activities and improve communication measures in Germany and throughout the rest of the world. adelphi also facilitates dialogue on how to improve prevention strategies by promoting exchange of experiences between experts, both in Germany and at the European level. Furthermore, we ensure a thorough and easy to access documentation of good adaption practices.
