As highlighted in the UN-World Bank report Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict, the number of violent conflicts has increased since 2010, thus raising the question of how violence and its escalation can be prevented. Conflict prevention mechanisms exist. Let’s take a look at Early Warning and Response Systems (EWRS), but first, what is early warning and early response?

The India Senior Water and Sanitation Consultant will work closely with the EWS team to identify opportunities for water related interventions that could be implemented by the private sector. The initial focus will be on Indian cities targeted for sustainable urban development under a parallel Eco-Cities program; these are Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Chennai, and Mumbai. However, the STCs scope of work will not be limited to these cities but also include others where viable water management opportunities can be identified. The consultant will report to the EWS Global Water Lead (based in Dhaka) but also work closely with the EWS Regional Lead for South Asia, the Eco-Cities Program Manager, and the New Delhi based Public Private Partnership (PPP) Team to identify potential opportunities in the Indian water sector.

The objective of this Project is to report on best practices to help developing countries leverage and apply technically and financially-viable, tested and proven ICT-enabled solutions for early warning systems (EWS) and emergency operation centers (EOC) for disaster risk management (e.g., earthquakes, landslides, drought, floods, tropical cyclones, volcanic eruptions). As an initial phase, this project will focus on ICT solutions used by infrastructure operators (i.e., river management and hydropower dams, roads, railways) and national and local governments for EWS and EOC
