SESSION 8

Climate, Information and Public Awareness

Climate dissemination methods must provide information to emergency management officials and the general public in a timely manner to ensure that appropriate action can be taken to minimize loss of life and property. In order to avoid confusion and elicit proper response, the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and organizations responsible for the issuance of geophysical related warnings, and the media, must work co-operatively to ensure that a clear and consistent message is provided to the public. Dissemination methods must provide critical information to emergency management officials and the general public in a timely manner to ensure that appropriate action can be taken to minimize loss of life and property.

Early warnings and forecasts along with climatological products and services can contribute significantly to public safety and security and be of enormous socio-economic benefit if properly understood and acted upon.
