The international Dialogue Platform 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, together with partners and pilot countries. Experience from current FbF-pilots is evaluated at the Dialogue Platforms and additional scientific expertise helps to fine-tune the work.
The latest international Dialogue Platform took place in Berlin, on 4-5 October 2017. For more information see the video below.
