Improving early warning systems for severe weather events and prolonged droughts

Sever climate events such as high temperature waves, heavy rains, floods and drought became common all over the world. Improving early warning systems is now a world-wide priority to protect lives and properties. In this session, researchers and organizations will present the latest of knowledge they have. This includes for example: harnessing Satellite services to reduce flood risk – a WMO’s contribution, development of Intensity-Duration-Frequency Curves for hydrologic design in Egypt, and mitigating flash floods and urban floods approach to implementing a flood early warning system in Nigeria, and a road map for Alexandria against drown possibilities.
