Anticipatory Action Community Directory  

The Anticipation Hub is facilitating connections between practitioners, scientists and policymakers across the anticipatory action community from global to local levels, to support knowledge exchange, learning, guidance and advocacy around anticipatory action.    

The Anticipatory Action Community Directory below can be used to help you to identify individuals working on anticipatory action in similar regional or country contexts, on different hazards and on various thematic focus areas.  Each profile outlines what they are looking for, and what they can offer to the anticipatory action community.  

Please use this directory to connect with potential partners for collaboration and experts that can help to guide or support your work on anticipatory action.  

This directory is currently being populated with profiles from Anticipation Hub partners and is being continuously updated.

After joining BDRCS I have been working on Trigger and Threshold part (Technical) and some part of Programme development. I have experience in developing trigger analysis model in GIS which may reduce our time to analyze the Impact-based Forecasting very faster. I was also responsible for data collection and analysis part. I am available for bi-lateral training/guidance in GIS and Data.
