Save the date: 10th Global Dialogue Platform, 6-8 December 2022

We’ve reached a major milestone! This year will see the 10th edition of the Global Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action. The event will take place from 6-8 December 2022 in Berlin, Germany, and online.

The growing wealth of lessons, outcomes, experience and evidence, gathered over more than eight years of implementing anticipatory action, will be under the spotlight at this year’s event. Over three days, participants will look back at what we have learned so far and discuss where we need to go next – as captured by this year’s overarching theme, ‘Lessons from anticipatory action: are we getting it right?’.

Together, we will seek to answer this question through three focus topics.

  1. Listening to the science, and learning from the evidence, to improve practice
  2. Investment and finance to build and implement systems for anticipatory action
  3. Scaling up anticipatory action: limits and possibilities

This year, alongside the main programme, we are encouraging participants to organize their own independent side events: pop-ups, technical meetings, workshops, networking parties – and any other creative ideas you may have! Further details about where and how these can be held will be shared very soon.

This year’s Global Dialogue Platform is being organized in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Food Programme, the Start Network and United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, with support from the German Federal Foreign Office. Further information about participation, registration and the agenda will be shared soon. Please subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates, or follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
