The specific objectives for the workshop and demonstration are:

o To demonstrate the availability and effectiveness of interoperable technologies based on the OASIS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) content standard which is applicable to all alerts and notifications in disasters and emergency situations
o To identify existing standardisation gaps, including authorisation and authentication of public warnings and the attendant implications for public policy
o To prepare an action list for filling gaps and promoting public warning standardisation, including identifying key players that could collaborate in such work.
The workshop will be accompanied by demonstrations of standards-based implementations providing all-media, all-hazards public warning in various societies worldwide, using the CAP OASIS Standard.
