Tackling the humanitarian consequences of climate change: Scaling up anticipatory action

Anticipatory action is increasingly becoming embedded within the humanitarian system. Shifting the focus from response to protecting people ahead of shocks is a faster, more dignified, and more cost-effective approach to disasters and crises.

The webinar took stock of the views of humanitarian partners and other stakeholders on the theme of anticipatory action.

A system-wide shift towards a more proactive approach to humanitarian crises requires a concerted effort of all relevant actors.  

The webinar objectives were to identify gaps and possible actions to reinforce multi-hazard/multi-risk disaster preparedness approaches and scale up anticipatory action in humanitarian contexts, based on case studies and current learning.    

The conclusions of the webinar will be further discussed at the EHF, taking place on January 24-26 2022 in a hybrid format. 

The webinar was organised by DG ECHO in partnership with France, VOICE and Anticipation Hub
