The inter-agency Early Warning and Readiness Report is produced bi-annually by the Task Team on Preparedness and Resilience. The report includes an analysis of the state of response preparedness, prepared by OCHA, in comparison to country specific risk.
The featured risks are divided into conflict and natural hazard risks and include a detailed risk analysis section followed by an associated preparedness analysis. The risk analysis assesses the risk’s drivers and projects trends while the preparedness analysis looks at the IASC system’s readiness level as well as national capacities to cope with identified risks. A health risk alert outlines the predominant polio, plague and cholera concerns in a separate section. This section was added in view of potential restrictions to the UN’s operational environment.
