Nexus' Anticipatory and Emergency Response Fund
A key element of Nexus’ different ways of working in Somalia is the fully locally-led and managed Anticipatory and Emergency Response Fund. It adopts a forecast-basedfinancing approach, with anticipatory and emergency response characteristics to address the vulnerability of Somalia’s predominantly rural population to recurring climatic shocks through a collaborative and community-informed approach to gathering, sharing and acting on early warning data. The fund is designed to address needs in a pre-emptive manner, and effectively respond to local emergencies, thereby supporting the community to mitigate losses and building resilience to future shocks.
