2023 - Anticipating food crises: Common principles to address challenges relating to Anticipatory Action. Outcomes of the 2022 Anticipating Food Crises workshop

Author: FAO/WFP
This outcome document reflects the conclusions reached at the 2022 Anticipating Food Crises workshop and is intended to support the work of policymakers and practitioners in Anticipatory Action.

In November 2022, actors gathered for a second time to advance discussions and agreements on the principles and criteria of four topics identified as key for scaling up Anticipatory Action in food crises contexts. They include the following examinations:

1. What are the most suitable approaches for analysing the impact of Anticipatory Action on food security to build the necessary evidence on its effectiveness?

2. How can anticipatory actions support the most vulnerable in protracted crises, understood as a situation characterized by recurrent natural hazards and/or conflict, the longevity of food crises and breakdown of livelihoods?

3. How can the use of food security projections be leveraged in Anticipatory Action?

4. How can Anticipatory Action be a catalyst for operationalizing the HDP nexus considering current food insecurity trends?
