Forecast-based Action is a system that enables the allocation of financial resources in advance of disasters to enable action as soon as an early warning is issued: days, weeks or even months before a disaster hits.
Based on in-depth forecast information and extensive risk analyses, the release of funds and specific early actions are lined out and agreed upon in so-called Early Action Protocols (EAPs). These EAPs define which stakeholder does what, where and when. When a pre-agreed trigger (or danger level) is then reached, a warning is issued and early actions are implemented to limit the damage of the predicted disaster.
