Formerly a bi-annual event, the Dialogue Platform now takes place once a year in Berlin. Additionally, three regional Dialogue Platforms are being held in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The events gather meteorologists, climate scientists, humanitarian actors and donors to work on scientific topics in the humanitarian context, improving the use of weather and climate data.
The Dialogue Platforms' overall goal is to develop a methodology for Forecast-based Financing as a response to the challenges of a changing climate, together with partner agencies and pilot countries. Experience from current pilots by the WFP and the Red Cross Red Crescent (National Societies and the Climate Centre) is blended at the Dialogue Platforms with scientific expertise to fine-tune the work.
For more information and outcomes of the past Dialogue Platforms, please see below.
