Critical Events Monitoring System - International Alert

Critical Events Monitoring System

The Critical Events Monitoring System (CEMS) provides real-time updates via SMS and two-way radio on critical and emerging conflicts.

Alerts are recorded in the database and sent to relevant stakeholders such as government agencies and the media to respond effectively to mitigate conflict escalation.

Community members act as data sources and harvesters, and report conflict incidents via the system. Given their local knowledge, community members, law enforcers, and traditional and religious leaders often provide immediate responses to these incidents, to quickly avoid further escalation. This multifaceted assembly also ensures a well-rounded and inclusive response.
