This paper by Dinanath Bhandari and Ajaya Dixit (Nepal) takes the unprecedented October 2021 rainfall over Nepal and uses it as a case study to discuss barriers to the effective use of early warning systems (EWS) in achieving disaster reduction objectives.
The study focused on the dissemination of weather forecast information related to the October 2021 rainfall (the event) and the bottlenecks that prevented the EWS from being used to minimize damage. The paper examines the mechanisms and functionalities in Nepal’s disaster risk reduction and management architecture.
The recommendations present corrective measures to make the system more robust and to help in saving lives, property and livelihoods.

Haiti Earthquake Response, Context Analysis

The context analysis and evaluative framework aim to
provide a useful contextual background for
operational reflection based on material available at the time of writing (April-May 2010);
serve as a sound and shared foundation for
evaluative efforts going forward;
suggest an overarching set of questions
contextualised for the Haiti response that might inform the development of a shared
evaluation framework—addressing different
evaluation criteria (OECD, RC-RC-NGO Code of Conduct, etc.)—and to be used to analyse and provide a compendium of the different evaluation efforts planned and underway; and
provide a useful structure for a future system-
wide synthesis report on the Haiti response
