Launched at the UN Climate Action Summit in September 2019, the Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) brings together an unprecedented range of stakeholders across the climate, humanitarian and development communities with the aim of making 1 billion people safer from disaster by 2025.
About Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP)
- REAP was launched with the announcement of four targets, each of which contribute to making 1 Billion People Safer from disaster by 2025.
- Developed by the convening partners of REAP, these ambitious targets are achievable only through partnership and a shared commitment to joined-up, risk-informed early action.
- The International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) hosts the Secretariat for the initiative.
- Integrated approaches based on multi-hazard early warning and predictable, coordinated funding allow government, communities and other actors to anticipate crises whilst also addressing long-term vulnerability.
- Global and regional early warning tools are mobilised to address the capacity, data and knowledge gaps in conflict affected national systems.
- Humanitarians and CSOs on the ground help combine this information into impact forecasts, while donors release funding in advance of hazard impacts.
- National governments are supported to build coalitions across REAP partners and stakeholders to co-design, fund and implement national programmes covering the full spectrum of climate and humanitarian interventions
- Integrated risk management is supported by coordination between relevant actors, including regional hydrometeorological services, national meteorological offices, national disaster management agencies and provincial bodies.
- By joining REAP, Partners gain access to a global network of expertise to support their work across the full value chain of Early Warning Early Action interventions.
- REAP will not create a new funding mechanism or directly implement ground level projects. Nor will it seek to monitor or manage existing country projects. REAP creates a space in which partners and aligned organizations will use the ambitious targets to mobilise commitments and inspire action at scale.
- Over 40 countries and organisations have joined the Risk-Informed Early Action Partnership commiting to make 1 billion people safer from disaster by 2025.
