Abstract

Early Warning Systems (EWS) operated by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the U.S. Agency for International Development are intended to provide warning of imminent famine and critical impacts on natural resources so that relief efforts can be efficiently mobilized. At present, there is no single package that integrates all of the functions critical for a global early warning sytem. With support from FAO, we have initiated development of an integrated set of software with a menu-driven and task-oriented user interface that will greatly improve the current approach to incorporating remote sensing and agrometeorological data in the early warning analysis process. -from Authors
