The Warning Project is a partnership of leading international practitioners, academics and consultants committed to helping organizations build capacity to better communicate during emergencies or other high risk events.
Non-partisan and independent, The Warning Project aims to use work with organizations that can afford it, to help support work with organizations that cannot.
The Warning Project promotes the idea that emergency and high risk communication isn’t about spinning your way out of blame or criticism. It’s about ensuring those affected and involved have the information they need to protect themselves and those they care for from serious risk. Simply put, it’s a core responsibility of organizations and must be viewed as a public good.
Through its workshops, training, research and analysis, The Warning Project strives to:
- Bridge theory and practice towards recommending concrete and sustainable action
- Be honest, if need be uncomfortably honest, but always constructive
- Embrace technology and its potential to transform high risk communication
- Track international best practice and where possible facilitate its open source exchange
- Apply adult learning techniques to seize precious capacity building opportunities
- Support worthy – if hard to finance – capacity building efforts around the world
