Thursday, November 30, 2017 1-2pm GMT / We interviewed humanitarian and development practitioners, donors, forecasters and other actors about the forecasts they received prior to the 2016-17 drought in East Africa, and actions taken to prepare for and anticipate the worst impacts.
In this webinar, we will present some of the most salient lessons and discuss their implications for the La Niña that was just declared by NOAA this month. There will also be an opportunity for the audience to share their own lessons and ways forward.
