Regional Workshop: Disaster Early Warning Systems for Early Action based on Forecast based Financing (FbF)
Date & TimeWednesday, 1st of December 2021 10:00 EAT - Friday, 3rd of December 2021 19:00 EAT
The aim of this event is to take a stock of early warning and Forecast-based Financing systems in the IGAD region and develop a regional roadmap for advancing FbF. The event will showcase results from the Forecast based Preparedness Action (ForPAC) project which aimed to improve forecasts of extreme rainfall, flooding and drought, by co-producing new forecast products over ‘seamless’ lead times (days to months) and improving the use of forecasts by integrating into operational Early Warning Systems (EWS) using a systematic anticipatory approach.
