Workshop Summary

Project: Africa Programme

Chatham House

This is a summary of a workshop held at Chatham House on 2 July 2012, as part of the project Translating Early Warning into Early Action. 

The project seeks to identify the particular barriers to responding in a timely and appropriate fashion to early warnings of slow onset food crises, and develop recommendations for how these can be addressed.

This workshop focused upon the particular problems and constraints within affected countries, and in particular the political and national contextual factors that can affect humanitarian space and the decision to respond to early warnings.
