Collaboration between the Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) and the Anticipation Hub
Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) and the Anticipation Hub have a common interest in and focus on early and anticipatory approaches that can help to mitigate the impact of disasters. The Anticipation Hub is a partner of the REAP.
REAP, launched in 2019 at the UN Climate Action Summit, brings together stakeholders across the climate, humanitarian, and development communities with the aim of making 1 billion people safer from disaster by 2025 by taking risk-informed early action to scale. The Anticipation Hub, launched in 2020, acts as a knowledge and exchange platform that provides practitioners, scientists and policymakers access to evidence-based learning resources, tools and expertise to collectively achieve successful anticipatory action in practice and protect communities at-risk ahead of disasters.
On this page you will find up-to-date information about how REAP and the Anticipation Hub are working together to successfully enable more anticipatory action at scale.
The Anticipation Hub and REAP have developed a short explainer document to provide an overview about how the Anticipation Hub and REAP relate and collaborate. This is important to explain given that both initiatives have a similar thematic focus on enabling early or anticipatory action, and both have strong links to the Red Cross and Red Crescent Network. The document provides background information, highlights the similarities between the initiatives, as well as the key differences and opportunities for complementary. It also demonstrates how both the Anticipation Hub coordination team and the REAP Secretariat are committed to continuous coordination to capture synergies across both initiatives.You can read the explainer document here
Co-chaired Sectoral Community
Under the InsuResilience Global Partnership, Working Group on Integrated Approaches, the Anticipation Hub and REAP Secretariat are co-chairing a new sectoral community called Linking Risk Financing and Anticipatory Action, launched in March 2021. The community seeks to accelerate the scaling up of anticipatory risk financing by unlocking synergies, facilitating community exchange and linking needs and solutions across sectors and organisations.Further details will be updated here
