Resources Shared

This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the area risk informed early action, charting the progress made by a small group of pioneering agencies and governments to the establishment of REAP at UNCAS 2019.

Participants will walk away with a grounding in the why, what, where and how of Early Action, an understanding of REAP and how it works, and REAP partner insights into the value of the partnerships. Most importantly, participants will leave with some ideas about what value their work and organisations could bring to REAP and the broader early warning early action agenda.
