Impact-Based Forecasting in Humanitarian Operations – COVALEX Webinar


23. November 2023    
11:00 - 12:00


COVALEX (Community of Valued Experts in Hydrometeorological and Technological Multi-Hazards) is an EU-funded project that aims to create a community of experts in hydrometeorological and technological hazards (thunderstorms, heavy snowfall, droughts, hot and cold spells etc.). The goal of COVALEX is to bundle and make use of different experiences, geographical locations, and networks, and to promote prevention, preparation, and testing processes. The project brings together key stakeholders involved in risk and disaster governance: academics, practitioners, and policy makers.

On 23rd November 2023 at 11:00 (CEST) COVALEX is holding a seminar on “Impact-Based Forecasting in Humanitarian Operations“.

The goal of the webinar is to share the good practice of the development of an Impact-Based Forecast (IBF) system under the EU-funded Programme PPRD EAST 3, aimed at introducing Early Warning to Early Action strategies into humanitarian interventions.
