About CIDMEWS

The Climate Information, Disaster Management and Early Warning System (CIDMEWS) has been developed by INTEGEMS for the Office of National Security - Disaster Management Department (ONS-DMD) and partner institutions (EPA-SL, SLMet, and MWR) under a UNDP funded project – Support to Communication and Dialogue on Early Warning and Forecasting Product & Climate Information Project. The system has been developed to establish a functional network of meteorological and hydrological monitoring stations to help understand better the weather and climatic changes over time and provide timely information to avert any weather and climate change-related disasters.

CIDMEWS provides a family of sophisticated tools and Web services for collecting, managing, visualizing, mapping, analysing, monitoring, evaluating and reporting on various aspects of climatological, hydro-meteorological, disaster management and early warning information in Sierra Leone to help understand better the weather and climatic changes over time, and provide timely information to avert any weather and climate change-related disasters.

Risk Knowledge

Risk knowledge & assessment provides essential information to set priorities
for mitigation and prevention strategies and designing early warning systems.

Monitoring and Predicting

Systems with monitoring and predicting capabilities provide timely estimates
of the potential risk faced by communities, economies and the environment.

Disseminating Information

Communication systems are needed for delivering warning messages
to the potentially affected locations to alert local and regional governmental agencies.
The messages need to be reliable, synthetic and simple to be understood by authorities and the public.

Response

Coordination, good governance and appropriate action plans are key points
in effective
early warning. Likewise, public awareness and education are critical aspects of disaster mitigation.
