Short summary
A common framework for early action to cope with complex disasters can make it easier for authorities and populations at risk, to understand the full spectrum of impacts and thus where to focus preparedness efforts, and how best to provide more targeted warnings and early actions. There are useful lessons from Multi-Hazard Impact-based Early Warning Systems for the COVID-19 pandemic, and some valuable insight to be gained in risk communication, analysis and monitoring methodologies.
