Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Weeks
HNPW 2024 (29 April - 10 May 2024)

Session title: Conducting rapid anticipatory analysis in a context of climate uncertainty
Organizer(s): ACAPS
8 May 24 16:00-17:30   (Salle 1)

Anticipating and responding to rapid onset hazards has always represented a challenge for the humanitarian sector. Climate change is intensifying the frequency and intensity of some of these hazards, such as flooding, heatwaves, storms, and wildfires, it is enhancing the weather variability, and its triggers shifts in seasonal patterns. This enhances the weather unpredictability and limits the reliability of seasonal forecasts, challenging anticipatory analysis and action.

Through an expert panel of humanitarian decision makers and operational actors, the session will focus on what makes the difference in funding allocation and operational decision making and prioritization when it comes to rapid onset disasters and explore how rapid anticipatory analysis can support the process.
