NOT FOR PROFIT
One World UPSEN Alliance is a not for profit, formed by a group of global volunteers and humanitarians that have worked for more than 25 years to develop Cell Broadcast messaging including all necessary standards, regulatory frameworks and support of global organizations working to protect our world’s populations from harms way.
UPSEN deployment is positioned for upfront financing through grants and commercial loan underwriting by international financial institutions including the World Bank Group's Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, GFDRR, which provides funding assistance for hydromet and early-warning systems.
Around the world, the increasing frequency and magnitude of disaster events is resulting in mounting loss of life due to the lack of effective emergency notification capability resulting in;
Alerts that are not timely,
Information that is not trusted,
Not all ‘At-Risk’ populations reachable.
You can help us change this situation and get UPSEN deployed globally.
- Executive Secretariat General – (Acting)
It is safe to say that without the determination and relentless “never quit” attitude and fortitude of Mr. Weiser Cell Broadcast may not have ever been utilized by nearly 20 Nations today for public warning services. The obstacles and hurdles thrown in front of the development of Cell Broadcast for public warning would have forced most humans to call it a day many years ago; but not Bud.
This journey began in 1994 with the death of a family member of one of the early contributors to his not for profit, which had just been formed, due to a tornado in the US mid-west. The story is that of documentaries at the very least. Mr. Weiser is today in the role of Acting - Secretariat General of One World Mobile Alliance to ensure his vision to ensure everyone on the planet can receive an Alert when they are in harms way, not just 19 wealthy nations.
