Description
 
In early 2005, the U.N. initiated a global survey of capacities & gaps in early warning systems, with a view to establishing a worldwide system for all natural hazards, building on existing nat. & regional capacity. This report synthesizes the findings of the survey, which found that early warning system technologies are now available for almost all types of hazards & are in operation in at least some parts of the world. Further, considerable progress has been made in developing the knowledge & technical tools required to assess risks & to generate & communicate predictions & warnings. However, there are many gaps & shortcomings, & the world is far from having a global system for all hazards & all communities. Illustrations.
