The word preceding can be used as an adjective and you can use it for something that happens or comes before something when things are taken into order. The following term can help you if you would like to use the word while writing or speaking: The preceding protests led to the resignation of the prime minister. The above mentioned sentence says that the prime minister has to resign because there is a lot of protest going on against him and that protests forced him to resign.

There are many other words that are based on the same root and more or less convey the same idea. You can find the words precede, precedence and precedent; all these words have been taken from the same root and say something about the order of things.
