Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:
  1.  Complete EWS training on the next project by:
  • providing flood forecast training after the multimodal software (ACMAD and MyDEWETRA:  weather and hydrological forecasting tools) is operational after its design phase. This is a follow-up to CIMA-trained IGEBU experts responsible for analyzing and producing weather reports;
  • ensuring the maintenance of the hydrological stations by purchasing sensors as some of them have been worn out;
  • putting into place a contingency plan for the EWS by conducting simulation exercises; and
  • training EWS focal points on the effectives use of the EWS communication tools at IGEBU. This would mean that EWS communication tools should be distributed to the EWS focal points and the emergency management and decision-making team in the field.
