This session aims to present ACAPS Seasonal Events Calendar dataset and how it can be used to inform humanitarian decision making. This dataset tracks seasonal events occurring in each country monitored by ACAPS in a typical year, and seasonal events that occur during a specific year. This session will present an innovative user-friendly display of the ACAPS seasonal calendar, discussing how this information can be accessed and can be used to flag events that may affect current humanitarian situations and, in particular, how it can be used to forecast new events and inform risk analysis.
