Global FOREWARN Meeting Q3 2022 - Volcanoes


31 August 2022




The Q3 Global FOREWARN Community Meeting will take place on Wednesday 31st August from 09:30 - 11:30 BST

L’interpretation simultanée vers le français sera assurée - Real time interpretation into French will be available.

Start Network Crisis Anticipation and Risk Financing team is pleased to invite you to the August FOREWARN Community meeting - with a focus on volcanic eruptions.

Last time, we opened with remarks from Sumera Javeed, co-chair of the Heatwave Technical Working Group, Pakistan, and heard National FOREWARN team highlights from 2021. We then looked closely at how and why to raise an anticipatory alert for heatwaves via the Start Fund, and heard from the German Red Cross about work on Forecast-based Financing for heatwaves in Viet Nam. 

Focusing on ongoing work in Pakistan, Ross Maidment, University of Reading, gave an update on heatwave model validation, followed by information on quantifying the impact of heatwaves presented by Start Network's Technical Lead. Finally, we heard from Bright Star Development Society, Balochistan, who spoke about learning from early action for heatwaves in Sibi, Pakistan 

Minutes, recordings, and community member updates are available here.

This quarter, we will focus on Start Network, national FOREWARN, members', and partners' work on anticipating volcanic eruptions. As always, we invite FOREWARN community members to share their own work, tools, or experiences around volcanic eruptions that could support collaboration to effectively anticipate this hazard.

Please contact with your request to share an update by Monday 15th August 2022, following which the final agenda will be shared.

The full meeting recording will be shared, as well as ways to engage with presenters, but please contact if you have difficulty attending the meeting.
