Hi members, Welcome to our training on GIS Mapping and Spatial Analysis in Early Warning Systems Course.

This course in  GIS Mapping and Spatial Analysis in Early Warning Systems has been developed to enhance the capacity of government officials, development partners, and stakeholders involved in development planning to mainstream disaster risk reduction into development activities and practices.


5 days.


This course is intended for audiences who form disaster management teams working in government agencies, NGOs, and Community Members working in governments, funding agencies, and research and non-government organizations for Emergency response and other Development programs.


Upon completion of the course, participants will:

·         Understand operational mechanisms and procedures for the prediction, forecasting, monitoring, and response to the warning

·         Design end-to-end early warning systems for several types of hazards including, action planning for disaster preparedness, emergency management, and social response concerning early warning;

·         Develop tools for early warning audits, identify current gaps in existing early warning systems, and put in place enhanced people-centered early warning system

·         Harmonization of the early warning system and disaster mitigation for effective disaster risk reduction

·         Undertake risk assessment and design of multi-hazard end-to-end early warning systems for disaster risk reduction

·         Develop strategies to institutionalize early warning systems into the process cycle of disaster risk reduction and development planning, emergency response, and preparedness activities

·         Interpret and translate scientific information products into user-friendly formats and prepare & communicate tailor-made early warning information products to elicit a response from the at-risk communities

·         Design and implement community-based early warning systems that are people-centered and that can effectively contribute to the risk management process/risk reduction

·         Evaluate and introduce public education and training programs for community-based early warning systems

·         Apply emerging new generation climate prediction technologies for anticipating and managing disaster risks associated with climate change & variability



Upon successful completion of this training, participants will be issued with an Indepth Research Institute (IRES) certificate certified by the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA).
