Hazardous Weather Warnings

The Expert Team on Disaster Preparedness and Mitigation (ET-DPM) is gathering success stories showing how disaster prevention and preparedness, in particular, effective warning systems, reduce vulnerability. It is planned that the stories grow into a database, which the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) can use to develop benchmarks for the enhancement of their PWS.
