Upcoming Webinar: ‘The Importance of Being Early in Humanitarian Response’

The increased frequency and intensity of climate shocks are expanding humanitarian needs and the impact on households. So far, the programming of humanitarian assistance has been mostly responsive and relief arrives when adverse and long-lasting effects have materialized. Given advances in forecasting weather shocks, what if governments and humanitarian actors could provide assistance to households ahead of or at the peak of shocks? In this dialogue, Stefan Dercon and Jonas Heirman will discuss the results of two evaluations of “anticipatory” cash transfers to flood-prone households in Bangladesh and Nepal.
