4th Africa Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action

We are pleased to announce that our 4th Africa Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action will be held from 29th June to 1st July 2021. The Africa Dialogue Platform 2021 will provide a platform for anticipatory action practitioners, policy makers and scientists/academia to present and debate on how we can build and strengthen systems to support effective implementation of anticipatory action in Africa.

The ADP 2021 will be a virtual edition due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Despite being online, the platform will be organised to be highly interactive. Simultaneous translations from English to French and Portuguese will be available during the event.

The Dialogue Platform is organized by the Anticipation Hub and hosted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the German Red Cross (GRC) in collaboration with the World Food Programme (WFP), the Start Network and the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre (RCCC). The 4th Africa Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office.
