Fragility, Conflict, and Migration
Anticipatory action and governance (ANTICIPATE)
Evidence-based decision-making and strong governance supports effective anticipatory action in “compound crisis” situations. International and local stakeholders require robust institutions to track and respond to cascading social, economic, and environmental risks emerging from shocks to FLWSs in FCASs and situations of abnormally high migration. Researchers are co-producing system-level and case study evidence in collaboration with implementers and beneficiaries of early warning /early action initiatives – including humanitarian and development agencies, governments, and local organizations – to generate practical guidance and purpose-built tools that inform gender-sensitive crisis preparedness, prevention, response, and climate adaptation. They will also highlight how governance arrangements at different levels mitigate fragility and conflict, promote social cohesion, and lay the groundwork for anticipatory action.
