What is Impact-based forecasting in disaster management? How can such forecasting strengthen the Disaster Management preparedness?

Impact-Based Forecasting (IBF) refers to weather monitoring and meteorological predictions which take into account the vulnerability and hazard to forecast impact in a region-specific approach.

How can IBF strengthen DM preparedness:

Recently, the Indian meteorological department came up with an Impact Based Cyclone Warning system for states most affected by tropical cyclones.
