The 7th Asia-Pacific Dialogue Platform takes place in June

The 7th Asia-Pacific Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action will take place in Kathmandu from 13 to 15 June. Drawing inspiration from Nepal’s famous mountain ranges, the theme for 2023 is ‘Reaching new heights: exploring trails for the sustainable growth of anticipatory action’. 

Over the three days, a series of interactive sessions and workshops will showcase the increasing momentum and growing experience in the region, drawing from the many anticipatory action projects, activations and simulations across this region. The invited participants – practitioners, government representatives, scientists and private sector representatives, among others – will have opportunities to share their own experiences, good practices and lessons learned, with a strong focus on cross-country conversations and identifying opportunities for collaboration and scaling up. 

First Nepal, then online 

This year’s dialogue platform is being split into two parts. Following the June meeting in Kathmandu, there will be a series of virtual events that are open to everyone with an interest in anticipatory action in the Asia-Pacific region. Details about these follow-up sessions will be shared soon by the Anticipation Hub.
