This factsheet assesses anticipatory cash transfers and early warning information ahead of drought in Ethiopia. Ahead of the March-May 2021 rainy season, forecasts indicated below-average rainfall was highly likely in the Somali region.
A large area centred around the central-northern part of Argentina, and also southern Bolivia, central Chile, and most of Paraguay and Uruguay, experienced record-breaking temperatures during two consecutive heatwaves in November and early December 2022.
This study describes a model to predict canopy water content during drought and heat waves, which could enable the development of fire danger forecasting models that include the role of vegetation in their calculations.
This paper examines the efficacy of Early Warning Early Action in conflict-affected countries: whether global forecast models predicted historical floods in conflict-affected regions and whether forecast information was communicated for droughts.
