Webinar: Analysis for Action (AA) Grant findings for Nyiragongo volcano in the DRC

Time: 13:00 - 14:00 (BST) 

Join CAFOD and Christian Aid as they share their recent Analysis for Action Grant (AA Grant) findings from Nyiragongo Volcano in DRC, followed by a discussion on next steps.   

The AA Grant allows Start members to implement an inter-agency analysis and planning process before raising an alert. The Grant is designed to help agencies better plan and prepare for forecasted crises. The Analysis for Action grant (AA Grant) was funded by the Start Fund Crisis Anticipation Window.

From April- June, CAFOD and Christian Aid analysed the level of preparedness of communities surrounding Nyiragongo and also produced likely scenarios and recommended actions. Overall, it was found that the community is vastly unprepared and activities need to take place to ensure that when the volcano does erupt, the population is aware of what to do.
