Building resilience to water induced hazards in Gilgit–Baltistan: Experiences from the Community Based Flood Early Warning System - Issue Brief

  • ICIMOD
  • Summary

Since Gilgit–Baltistan is highly prone to floods, there is a pressing need for disaster preparedness in this territory. The experience from ICIMOD’s pilot sites in other areas of Pakistan have shown that sustained partnerships among vulnerable communities in flood-prone areas play a key role in providing real-time early warning information and thereby saved lives. The Community Based Flood Early Warning System (CBFEWS) is effective in flood-related disaster preparedness as it provides real-time early warning and sufficient lead time to the vulnerable communities.
