This project will assess the human resources, equipment, and protocols of the Early Warning Early Action and Anticipatory Systems (EW-EAAS) in Indian Ocean countries (Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, and Seychelles) and make recommendations to improve the current EW-EAAS setup.

The main outcomes and outputs under this project are that of improving national institutional and operational DRR and preparedness in the four targeted countries – Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles. The analysis will provide regional, national and local authorities and partners with essential information for improved Early Warning for Early and Anticipatory Action Systems (EW-EAASs) and procedures. The results of the assessment and the recommendations will be disseminated to national, regional and international DRR stakeholders for consideration in DRR projects in the region and will be used as a basis for the activities to be implemented by the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC) within the RDRM-IO programme (i.e., investment in equipment for NDMAs in the four countries aiming to enhance EW-EAASs) therefore also enhancing sustainable development goals at national and regional levels.
