Have your say on last-mile communication

The Mediterranean and pan-European Forecast and Early Warning Systems against natural hazards (MedEWSa) is a consortium project to improve impact forecasting and support the rapid deployment of first responders in vulnerable areas, significantly improving communities’ safety and resilience.

We focus on specific pilot sites across eight countries, however, responses from individuals residing in different areas within the specified countries are also welcome:

  • Simien, Bale Mountains and Gambella National Parks, Ethiopia
  • Venice, Italy
  • Alexandria/ Delta Nile, Egypt
  • Kosice, Slovakia
  • Tbilisi, Georgia
  • Catalonia, Spain
  • Sweden (countrywide)

Early warning (EW) messages and alerts are used to communicate to people an imminent threat or hazard and provide them with timely instructions about the risk.

We build up this survey where questions are split up into six sections and will ask you about the following:

  1. Demographic information; 
  2. Experience with early warning systems;
  3. Communication channels available in your region; 
  4. Accessibility, clarity and reliability of these communication channels; 
  5. Early warning Communication needs; and 
  6. Feedback and your personal preferences

This survey aims to collect information from the general public about which communication channels and flows are used and preferred to broadcast early warnings and investigate their inclusivity and accessibility with a specific focus on last-mile communication.
