Our ambition is to play a leading role in ensuring that communities can adopt anticipatory approaches:
- We aim to empower at-risk communities to protect themselves by providing them with crucial information, resources, guidance, and support before the disaster disrupts their lives and livelihoods.
- We provide long-term support to national societies and their local partners, which is focused on developing capacities relating to adopting anticipatory approaches.
- Through the actions of national societies and local partners, communities at risk are better prepared to protect themselves, which will spare them from losses and suffering.
- Disaster risk management stakeholders also benefit as they can use the specific forecast or warning to focus their early actions on the most at-risk areas while better preparing for the transition to disaster response.
