GLOBAL FOREWARN COMMUNITY MEETING Q1
Last year, we explored collaboration with the Risk Informed Early Action Partnerships (REAP), the Anticipation Hub, and took part in many sessions at the IFRC Global Dialogue platform on anticipatory action. You can find the previous meeting minutes and FOREWARN community member updates here.
This time, we will trial our commitment to shorter, thematic meetings and are pleased to bring you this first session on tropical cyclones!
The first half of the meeting will explore recent Start Fund Anticipation alerts for tropical cyclones; the challenges and successes, as well as the latest progress from our FOREWARN Madagascar cyclone anticipation tool. During the second half of the meeting, we invite FOREWARN community members to share their own cyclone-focussed work, tools or experiences that could support collaboration to effectively anticipate cyclones.
This meeting will also include the regular updates from our Crisis Anticipation and Risk Financing team, including our national FOREWARN projects in Madagascar, Bangladesh and The Philippines.
Meeting will take place on the 18th of March 2021 from 09:30-11:00 GMT
