Community Based Early Warning Systems (CBEWS) seek ways to help communities use local resources and capacities effectively to better prepare for and respond to disasters and adopt measures to reduce their vulnerability.
CBEWS as a major element of DRR/M is one among the nine minimum characteristics for a disaster resilient community in Nepal.
During the 6th Asian Ministerial Conference on DRR held form 22-26 of June 2014 in Bangkok of Thailand, DIPECHO Partners from Nepal through a side event shared their experiences on Institutionalizing EWS in Nepal. Click here to see the presentation shared during the side event.
