Two new briefings from the Anticipation Hub
Launched ahead of COP28, these briefings will inform discussions around how anticipatory action can support those on the frontline of the climate crisis.
Anticipating drought in Timor-Leste
In October 2023, FAO activated its Anticipatory Action Protocol for Agricultural Drought in Timor-Leste. Our new blog provides an update on this work.
Submit your data for the next Global Overview report
The second edition of the Global Overview report will be published in 2024 - and we are inviting the anticipatory action community to send us their data.
Uganda acts in anticipation of the peak impacts of floods
As floods continue to affect large areas of East Africa, the Uganda Red Cross Society has activated its EAP for Floods to support those at risk.
Djibouti activates its Simplified EAP for Floods
The Red Crescent Society of Djibouti has activated its Simplified EAP for Floods and will now support 2,500 people through a series of anticipatory actions.

Therefore, scaling up is not just “more”, it also means “better”.
To respond collectively in a coordinated manner, we must work together.
What is global is local somewhere and what is local is global somewhere else. For this reason, it is very important for us to actually come together and co-design, co-produce and co-implement, so we can learn from each other and also cross-fertilize ideas and solutions.
Better anticipation allows us to stay ahead of the curve in an increasingly volatile climate, connecting scientific information to practical action on the ground.
Anticipatory action has tremendous potential to increase the efficiency of life-saving interventions and protect the most vulnerable. This is especially true for women and girls who often face some of the most severe risks. Through well-targeted anticipatory approaches, we can better empower women and girls to face crises on their own terms.
Anticipatory actions are the bright spots in a bleak humanitarian outlook. If we manage to move more in that direction, we will get a response that is faster, cheaper, and more dignified. One that protects hard-won development gains.
