The early warning system in Sudan includes warnings on the food security situation, floods, epidemics, fires and emergencies, with a focus on drought, floods and armed conflicts. Efforts were made to establish such systems by using the disaster indicators, with the aim of forecasting, alerting local communities and providing information to decision-makers and the international community on the expected situation.
