Emerging challenges for early warning systems in context of climate change and urbanization

This paper is a joint review undertaken to identify opportunities and implications for early warning systems in the light of changing climate. The study was the result of a review of the institutional learning gained from the work undertaken by PPEW since its creation, in particular in investigating linkages to emerging risk from climate change, expanding urban growth in risk areas, and in the context of the development of early warning systems needed to address the challenge of seasonal forecast for livelihoods' adaptation.
