Session title: Anticipation Hub - collaboration opportunities in the new phase
26 Apr 23 11:00-12:30   (Salle 16)

The Anticipation Hub is a platform to facilitate knowledge exchange, learning, guidance, and advocacy around anticipatory action. A joint initiative between the German Red Cross (GRC), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre (Climate Centre), the Anticipation Hub brings together 100+ partners across the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, universities, research institutes, (i)NGOs, UN agencies, governments, donors, and network initiatives.

During this session we will introduce the tools and resources on the Hub, and highlight the different ways how to get involved in the its new phase. The Hub resources are geared towards practitioners, policy makers and scientists and offer a myriad of databases, instruments and activities to inspire, encourage and learn from anticipatory action practices worldwide.

The session will also involve interactive discussions with partners around different thematic working groups for anticipatory action that the Anticipation Hub hosts including (1) Earth observation (2) Conflict (3) Gender, Protection and Inclusion (4) Disaster Risk Financing (5) MEAL (6) Health.

News flash #1 | A new working group on Compound and Cascading Risk Working will be introduced for the first time!
News flash #2 | The Regional Advisors of the Anticipation Hub from the Americas, Asia Pacific and Africa will be in Geneva. Learn from them about the latest on anticipatory action from the regions.

We will also provide space for partners to pitch ideas and collaboration opportunities from across regions and thematic areas.

To wrap up, we will enjoy an aerial acrobatics performance from Brazilian artists. But what does that have to do with anticipatory action?


Find out and join us for a fun and interactive session to connect, learn and collaborate on anticipatory action.

Together, we can identify gaps, incubate innovations, develop solutions and accelerate action.
