The Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems (CREWS) has released its annual report; Building Momentum. The latest edition outlines how CREWS funding from international partners, such as the World Meteorological Organization, World Bank Group, UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, and 12 donor countries, including the UK, has contributed to its efforts.

CREWS has supported climate-vulnerable populations by improving resilience and establishing early warning systems. Since 2017, this has enhanced forecasting and warning services for 125 million people in 19 countries, benefiting 396 million people. The initiative aims to expand early warning services to cover everyone by 2027, focusing on Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States. CREWS plans to implement more robust monitoring and impact assessment in 2024.
