Join REAL for a discussion on practical Early Warning System (EWS) tools, featuring speakers from Food for the Hungry.

Designing people-centered EWSs has improved information quality, warning timeliness, and warning messages. However, we still need to improve how we engage exposed and vulnerable populations around early preparation, prevention, and mitigation. To this end, Food for the Hungry conducted a literature review and proposed a new, behaviorally-informed EWS framework. Food for the Hungry Kenya then piloted a set of Participatory Learning and Action tools in three communities in northern Kenya affected by cyclical drought. In this event, Food for the Hungry will share key takeaways from the literature review and the pilot study. Come explore these tools and discuss potential future applications in various contexts.

The event will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation in French.
