Global FOREWARN Community Meeting Q4
Date & TimeThursday, 2nd of December 2021; 10:00 - 12:00 GMT
Start Network Crisis Anticipation and Risk Financing team is pleased to invite you to the December FOREWARN Community meeting - with a focus on flash flooding and landslides.
Last time, we heard updates from our National FOREWARN Coordinators in Bangladesh, Madagascar, Pakistan, and the Philippines, and looked closely at anticipating flooding through the Start Fund. This was followed by an in depth look at the flood modelling process in Pakistan, perspectives on flooding from the DRC Hub, an evaluation of the use of global forecasting data in anticipatory action, and implementation case studies from members, partners, and the anticipation community in Mozambique, Zambia, Bangladesh and the Philippines. Minutes, recordings, and community member updates are available here.
This quarter, we will focus on National FOREWARN work on anticipating flash flooding and landslides. As always, we invite FOREWARN community members to share their own flash flooding and landslide work, tools, or experiences that could support collaboration to effectively anticipate these hazards.
Please contact FOREWARN@startprogrammes.org with your request to share an update by Friday 12th November 2021, following which the final agenda will be shared.
We are working hard to make these meetings accessible to all time zones, and hope to bring a range of options in the future. The full meeting recording will be shared, as well as ways to engage with presenters, but please contact FOREWARN@startprogrammes.org if you have difficulty attending the meeting. Creating connections and partnerships is fundamental to FOREWARN and your feedback will help us find solutions for future meetings.
Please find the minutes of the previous meetings here.
