How can we warn populations of imminent hazards? How do such warnings interact with the socio-political context in which they are given? And how can we extend these warnings beyond hazards, to anticipate potential disasters? This panel discussion will investigate the role of early warning systems in disasters, and how such warning systems can mitigate disasters. Recognising that the stages of the “disaster cycle” are far from distinct, we will consider warnings on different timescales, both immediately before a hazard and in the months and years over which the political, social and economic contexts of disaster develop.
