For a number of years the ICA has developed a focus on Early Warning and Crisis/Disaster/Risk management. Contemporary Chair of the Working Group, Prof. Milan Konečný, first elaborated on the need for cartography and GIScience to be actively involved in this area at the Second International Conference on Early Warning (EWC II) in 2003. ICA was between the first members of JBGIS who started to deal with the problem. The topic of Early Warning and Crisis Management was also incorporated into the 2005 Memorandum of Understanding between the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs and the ICA. At the 13th ICA General Assembly, held in 2005 in conjunction with the ICC in La Coruna, was agreed to establish a Working Group on Early Warning and Crisis Management, which has been upgraded on Commission in 2007 at ICC in Moscow.
