The host of this Workshop is the Secretariat of Integral Risk Management and Civil Protection. In the same venue, a CAP "Train the Trainers" session will be all day on 16 October. Everyone interested in emergency alerting is welcome: managers, technical staff, media, etc., including those in government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and commercial organizations. There is no charge to participate.
The Workshop co-sponsors are OASIS, the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Telecommunication Union(ITU), and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). These Workshops focus on emergency alerting as enabled by the CAP standard, ITU-T Recommendation X.1303. At the Workshops, implementers of CAP and other associated organizations discuss common issues and how best to leverage the expanding adoption of CAP.
