Description

BACKGROUND

At the Global Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction in May 2022, the Anticipation Hub launched its Future Leaders Network on Early Warning Early Action. The objectives of the network are to connect, inspire and empower future leaders across practice, science and policy, to work collaboratively on promoting the use of climate information at all time scales and early warnings that enable effective early/anticipatory action on the ground. You can sign up to join the network here

OBJECTIVES

During this virtual session happening as a post-event of the 5th Africa Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Action (28 - 30 June), the co-chairs of the network will share information about the network and its objectives and engage in a discussion with the participants on the needs and priorities for the network for future leaders in Africa. Early Warning Early Action efforts are increasing on a global scale and in particular in Africa. Therefore, it is important to engage early-career professionals from Africa and working in Africa to ensure that EWEA activities reach their full potential and become sustainable by breaking down silos and linking practice, science and policy.

The session will be one of the first activities of the network after its launch and will therefore be an important step in the evolution of the network and at the same time a good opportunity for the participants to actively engage in the network and help shape it.
