Last year’s 2019 Global Dialogue Platform showcased dynamic urban anticipatory action achievements, learning and exchange. Building on this achievement, the German Red Cross (GRC) together with National Societies and key partners have continued expanding upon this emerging topic, exploring how cities function and how to advance anticipatory action in urban contexts.
This year the German Red Cross took the opportunity to convene the urban anticipation community for a half-day conference to investigate the topic of operationalizing urban early action. The conference
“Anticipatory Humanitarian Assistance in the Urban Context” took place on December 7, 2020, preceding the Global Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action.
