Welthungerhilfe FbA Kick off/Recap Call for Zimbabwe Start Network Member Organizations

How to become an EAP Custodian through Welthungerhilfe’s FbA Programme

Welthungerhilfe supported by the Start Network is setting off on a drought early action journey in Zimbabwe. We would like to organise a meeting with all Start Network member organisations active in Zimbabwe to kick off formally, and/or recap to those who were at previous inception meetings what is planned and how members can be involved. The meeting will take place between 10:30 to 12:00 CET (11:30 to 13:00 CET+1) on the 3rd of February 2021.

Welthungerhilfe’s FbA programme with technical support by the Start Network has the aim of enabling Start Network members in Zimbabwe to get ahead of droughts - by building a scientific model that predicts droughts, allocating funding to Early Action Protocols (EAPs), and implementing Early Actions that limit the damage caused by severe droughts and protecting livelihoods through preventative action. We have developed this approach over the past 3 years in Madagascar and are now scaling and adapting it to Zimbabwe and Kenya (For more information about the regional dimension of the project please see the 3 pager, or for Zimbabwe specific information here). This event will therefore inform Start Network member organisations in Zimbabwe how to become so called EAP Custodians and as such how they will collaborate in the development and implementation of EAPs.

In case you are interested, kindly contact in order to register and to receive access to the MS Teams Meeting.
