COP27 and anticipatory action
There was plenty of encouraging developments for the anticipatory action community at COP27 – but the hard work starts now to turn words into the actions.
The potential for anticipatory action ahead of drought
In Lao PDR, FAO and its partners are using community consultations to ensure that planned anticipatory actions ahead of drought really meet people’s needs.
Simplified Early Action Protocols: a lighter approach
National Red Cross Red Crescent Societies looking to implement anticipatory action now have another modality they can use: Simplified Early Action Protocols.
A major step forward for anticipatory action in Uganda
In November 2022, Uganda held its first National Dialogue on Anticipatory Action - a major milestone in efforts to scale up this approach across the country.

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.
