A follow-up meeting to last year’s high-level meeting Anticipate and Act chaired by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs in collaboration with WFP, UNDRR, the Swedish Red Cross and Sida.
The purpose of the event “Disaster Displacement and Anticipatory Financing” is to follow up on last year’s high-level meeting Anticipate and Act on Addressing the Humanitarian Impact of Climate Change which was co-hosted by Sweden, WFP and UNDRR in collaboration with the Swedish Red Cross (see summary video here).
The intention is to keep up the momentum for the anticipatory action agenda, to review progress, to bring up aspects not sufficiently covered at the high-level meeting and to deepen the understanding on how best to move forward, including the process towards COP26.
