About the project

Climate risks nowadays call for innovative solutions in order to use scarce resources more efficiently and effectively. Forecast-based financing is an innovative approach using the scientific data to indicate elevated risks and then release humanitarian funding for actions before a potential disaster.

German Red Cross and World Food Programme are therefore testing the approach in seven high risk countries, including Bangladesh, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Mozambique, Nepal, Philippines and Peru.
