This publication reviews the evidence base on Anticipatory Action (AA) and concludes that to achieve an effective scale up of the approach and ensure Anticipatory Action achieves the intended changes on both disaster response systems and people’s vulnerability and resilience to climate change, robust empirical data and a strong monitoring, evaluation and learning agenda are necessary.
Key recommendations include:
- Greater investment into Monitoring/Evaluation/Learning (MEL) systems;
- Common analytical frameworks; and
- A focus on improving the models.
