This UNDRR-WMO joint report assesses the current global status of multi-hazard early warning systems (MHEWS) against Target G of the Sendai Framework, collating data officially reported by the Member States with data collected through a WMO survey.

The findings identify countries’ challenges and note good practices in forecasting capabilities, early warning coverage, and systems to act on them. The report offers a substantive basis to inform actions in response to the UN Secretary-General’s call for “early warnings for all”, while making policy recommendations for the Mid-Term Review of the Sendai Framework.

IRDR SC member Dr. Bapon Fakhruddin contributed to this report.
