EWS Is Essential for Resilience Planning of Disasters, Says PM Shehbaz



  • In order to protect underprivileged and climate-affected countries, early warning system (EWS) has become crucial.
  • The early warning chain contributes to the improvement of the four disaster elements: risk awareness, risk detection, prevention, and preparedness.
  • It also serves as a key communication tool in informing individuals living in backward areas of impending natural disasters.

The Early Warning System (EWS) is now essential for undeveloped and climate-affected countries to plan for resilience and adaptation, claims Prime Minister of Pakistan Shehbaz Sharif.

He remarked in a roundtable discussion at the executive planning for the early warning system’s introduction that the system serves as a crucial communication tool to alert people living in backward areas about impending natural disasters.

The early warning system and the use of cutting-edge technology would improve the four elements of disaster: risk awareness, risk detection, prevention, and readiness, he said.

It prevented thousands of lives from being lost during this summer’s glacial lake outburst flood, which was brought on by the country’s prolonged heat wave, he further added.
