Learn more about innovative anticipatory humanitarian action, based on impact-based disaster forecasting, pre-emptive action and pre-emptive response.

Oxfam, Plan International, and KUNO invite you to join this online learning event based on a tested model of anticipatory and community-based humanitarian action!


The Building Resilient, Adaptive and Disaster-Ready Communities (B-READY) is a novel humanitarian-development nexus disaster risk reduction model funded by the DRA Innovation Fund (DIF) that strategically invests in disaster preparedness and anticipatory humanitarian action. It features innovations such as the use of scientific early warning systems or pre-emptive cash transfer. And it puts communities at the centre and builds on localisation and complementarity with local actors.

About the event

Local partners and the B-READY initiators of Oxfam and Plan will present their learnings on using the innovative B-READY model and will present the B-READY Toolkit. The aim of this meeting is to explore the advantages that the B-READY multi-stakeholders’ partnership model can have in the humanitarian space.

This online event (ZOOM) will include short presentations from several speakers with different perspectives on pre-emptive action. There will plenty of room to share experiences via Q&As and interactive breakaway sessions.

This interactive learning session is open to practitioners from the humanitarian sector, as well as non-experts of international NGOs. Translation from English to French and Spanish will be available during the event.
