Duty station: Home based, and in Hanoi.
Reporting: German Red Cross Head of Project Office in Vietnam
As the new concept developed by the GRC, Forecast-based Financing (FbF) is a
mechanism that uses climate and weather forecasts to trigger timely humanitarian actions, before a hazard hits the exposed population. These actions described in specific Early Action Protocols are automatically funded when the triggering forecast is released.
Since 2018, GRC and Vietnam Red Cross (VNRC) are in partnership to implement
the “FbF Ready” project coping with heat waves impacts in Hanoi. The goal of the project is the identification of early actions that can reduce these health impacts of heat waves, with a special focus on groups that are particularly affected such as the elderly, children, people with disability, people with chronic disease and street worker. Practical experience and institutional learnings on FbF for heat waves are documented and widely shared for replication and scaling up. This contributes to the global FbF programme by providing evidence and context based inputs to the finalization of the FBF methodology with focus on urban context heat waves. This also contributes (1) to enhance VNRC capacity in the field of FbF and (2) to enhance its visibility and credibility at national and regional levels as leader on the the forefront in the anticipatory humanitarian actions. With its auxiliary role to the Vietnamese Government in humanitarian, VNRC also aims to replicate the new FbF approach in other hazards in Vietnam, hence, VNRC has developed a FbF framework for 5 coming years with key important contents including capacity building, advocacy and communication of FbF approach to wider audiences including DRM governmental agencies, donor, scientists and communities in Vietnam. For the fulfilment of the VNRC FbF framework, the development of a FbF communication strategy/plan is key for replication and scaling up FbF in Vietnam.
