The IGAD Regional Roadmap for Anticipatory Action
The development of the IGAD Regional Roadmap on Anticipatory Action (IRRAA) is a product of a collaborative process involving Disaster Management Authorities and National Meteorological and Hydrological Services in the IGAD Member States. There is significant contribution from regional and national stakeholders across different sectors in the region and the secretariat for regional technical working group on Anticipatory Action.
Humanitarian and disaster risk management actors have an increased focus on building capacity and developing systems to protect vulnerable people from predictable hazards before they become disasters, through the Anticipatory Action (AA) approach. The Anticipatory Action approach aims to avoid and reduce the potential impact of disasters using tailored forecasts, risk implement pre-agreed anticipatory actions. This is in recognition that climate extremes, which are one of the major primary drivers of losses and damages and humanitarian emergencies, can be better anticipated in recent times thanks to the advances in science and early warning systems.
