Tuvalu deploys early warning system (EWS)

Tuvalu has deployed an Early Warning System (EWS) under the Government of Tuvalu's National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA 2) project with the support of UNDP. The EWS will serve as a communications backup in the disaster-prone region. For more information read the following articles from UNISDR and WMO.
