During a dedicated session on the social components of EWS, communicating risks, and community-based forecasting, participants from ICIMOD, Mercy Corps, Practical Action, Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, and the World Food Programme shared operational experiences in engaging communities in flood EWS and disaster preparedness activities. The forum provided a platform to discuss the challenges associated with the development, implementation, dissemination, and sustained use of information services for water and weather-induced disasters. Possible recommendations to address these issues were also discussed. Participants recommended leveraging expertise across national boundaries, holding regular quorums at the regional level, training forecasters to generate user-friendly forecasts, and training media persons and communities in understanding technical concepts in forecasts. They also recommended engaging community networks and the private sector to relay early warning information to end users. A consultation workshop with partners followed the two-day event to discuss achievements and a way forward for early warning systems for flood and extreme weather events developed under SERVIR-HKH.
