Early action and forecast-based financing (FbF) have grown exponentially in recent years, with more than 25 countries developing early warning early action systems, enabling governments and humanitarian actors to act before a disaster happens based on reliable forecast and risk data. Building on strong cross-sector collaboration and innovation, investments in this field are contributing to multiple advances across science, policy, institutions and lives and livelihoods on the ground. This session aims to have a critical yet solutions-oriented dialogue around the multiple dividends arising from investments in early action, challenges and opportunities, and practical next steps. We will crack the nut of understanding incentives to make early action scalable and effective.
