“Forecast-based Financing in the Philippines – Closing the Gap between Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Relief” Project
The Philippine Red Cross implements the “Forecast-based Financing in the Philippines – Closing the Gap between Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Relief” with the technical support of German Red Cross (GRC) and Finnish Red Cross (FinnRC). It is a 36-month project which aims to contribute to the reduction of humanitarian consequences of extreme natural events on the population in high risk areas. This project will support the Philippine Red Cross’ strategic plan (2017-2020), in particular to its first goal which intends to establish “safe and resilient communities”.
Purpose and scope of the consultancy
To provide information to Philippine Red Cross and its Partners on viable options for early actions. It shall determine what are the possible early actions to implement for a certain hazard, in specific risk-prone areas, and in different time scales. Moreover, since phase 2 of FbF is aiming for a national scope, early actions to be identified should be flexible and replicable at any location. It should be considered in a way that it can be adapted and implemented everywhere the hazard might hit, resulting in a significant reduction of disaster impact.
Forecast-based actions could be early response actions (for prevention and/or mitigation) and / or preparedness for response actions (for more effective disaster response).
