The international FEWS community meets in Delft for the 15th user days

The 2019 International Delft-FEWS User Days celebrated the 15th year of User Days and welcomed 150 participants from across the globe. In a survey of participants, both veteran and rookie User Day attendees were present in great numbers.

Keynote speeches were delivered from two markedly different contexts. Al Pietroniro describing the Canadian context for cold regions data collection and operational modelling, while May Layugan described the rapid growth of the Philippine Red Cross Early Warning in Action.

Presentations of great quality were given from government, industry and academic speakers on the challenge of Early Warning in Action. Notable in this were new developments from the Incident Management Forecasting System from the UK Environment Agency and the planned path of Delft-FEWS as we move towards 2025.

We look forward to hosting the User Days next year in Delft, Nov 4-5, 2020 and see our new and old community members once again.
