A message from the Anticipation Hub
Extensive knowledge exchange, learning and advocacy on anticipatory action have continued over the past months. Our collective drive to enable more anticipatory action was clear at COP26 with over 40 sessions related to anticipatory action, and increased financial support from governments and donors. Together as a community we can maintain this growing global momentum for scaling up and transform these commitments into anticipatory action on the ground.

On 7 December, our global anticipatory action community will come together to share knowledge, learn from each other and exchange experiences at the 9th Global Dialogue Platform on Anticipatory Humanitarian Action. We look forward to welcoming you all from a live studio in Rome, with our co-organisers FAO and WFP, for plenty of interactive and insightful sessions, and to celebrate the Antcipation Hub's 1st birthday! Over 450 people joined the Asia-Pacific Dialogue Platform, in October and we can’t wait to see many of you again at the #GlobalDP.

Following on from the Global Dialogue Platfrom, the outcomes of the upcoming preparatory event on scaling up anticipatory action, on 14 December, will feed into the European Humanitarian Forum, which takes place in January 2022.

This newsletter captures the various resources on different thematic topics produced by our community over the past months, including blogs, case studies, guidance material and videos. We have launched the Evidence Database and our working groups are continuously strengthening knowledge exchange, as evident through the materials shared here. And we recently welcomed Data Friendly Space, iMMAP and Save the Children as new partners of the Anticipation Hub.

As always, please keep in touch and share your knowledge resources, news and events on anticipatory action!
