These Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are intended to help catalyse and guide earlier humanitarian and development action to future ENSO-related extreme weather events (including drought, flooding, cyclones and extreme heat/cold and related events such as disease outbreaks). The SOPs outline what actions need to be taken, by whom and by when, once there are warning signs of a possible or impending ENSO event, to mitigate or prevent its impacts.

In early 2015, a joint UNICEF/ WFP research initiative supported by DFID and conducted by the Boston Consulting Group established that the average financial return on investment (ROI) for 49 humanitarian preparedness interventions analyzed in high risk contexts is more than 200%.This means that every $1 spent on preparing is worth more than $2 in the event of an emergency. Preparedness was also shown to save responders more than one week of operational time on average – reaching more people faster to save more lives.
