The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has published a new introductory Guide for Anticipatory Finance. The guide introduces the topic of anticipatory action to stakeholders, setting out the benefits and sources of finance available for anticipatory action. The guide advocates governments to systematically establish coordinated processes for maximising anticipatory action and financing, to embed this across all phases of the disaster risk management cycle based on cost-benefit analysis. It calls for greater collaboration, sharing and learning to improve the adoption, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of anticipatory action and finance instruments.
