OPEN call - July 2017
Deadline 01 September 2017
Scoping and design for taking forecast-based early action to scale
The objective of this project is to build evidence to support forecast-based early action through a review of existing forecasting capabilities and links to finance triggering for early actions in a range of different contexts and, through this process, to identify and rank potential opportunities for scaling up the approach. This will form the basis for the development of detailed concept notes for the implementation of the approach at the large scale in a small number of prioritised focal studies. It will also generate evidence and best practice that could be shared more widely.
