Delft-FEWS International User Days 2019: Early Warning in Action

The programme
Keeping this year’s theme in mind, we welcome Delft-FEWS users from around the globe for two active days in the Netherlands. We kick off both days with a special keynote speaker:

  • Day 1: Dr. Alain Pietroniro, Executive Director, National Hydrological Service of Canada,  Meteorological Service of Canada. The discussion and presentation will focus on description of the current state of the Canadian flood-forecasting efforts, both regionally and national. Details on modelling infrastructure and model development along with challenges in hydrological prediction within the Canadian context are highlighted.
  • Day 2: May Layugan, Manager Operations Center, Philippine Red Cross will give a keynote address about the digitalization of the Vulnerability Capacity Assessment as well as the modernization of the command center and how it helps the organization from all phases of disaster; from preparedness to response to recovery through the combination of volunteers, logistics and information technology.

Taking part
