The International Dialogue Platform takes place in Berlin once a year. Additionally, three regional Dialogue Platforms are held in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The events gather humanitarian actors, meteorologists, climate scientists, national governments and decision-makers. They discuss how to improve Forecast-based Financing, how to implement the concept into existing projects and how to advance the use weather and climate data.
The Dialogue Platforms’ overall goal is to develop a methodology for Forecast-based Financing, together with partners and pilot countries, and to create an exchange between participants to help and enable the implementation of FbF. Experience from current FbF-pilots is evaluated at the Dialogue Platforms and additional scientific expertise helps to fine-tune the work.
The last Global Dialogue Platform took place in Berlin in autumn 2019. Watch the video below to get an impression.
