IFRC is the world's largest humanitarian organization, providing assistance without discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. IFRC carries out relief operations to assist victims of disasters and combines this with development work to strengthen the capacities of its member National Societies. IFRC capitalizes on its network of National Societies and volunteers to scale up innovative and effective community-based/led disaster risk reduction and climate action programmes, building on three decades of extensive experience in disaster and climate risk management and its unique mandate as auxiliary to governments.
As one of CADRI’s Technical Partners, IFRC deploys specialized expertise to support CADRI work at global, regional and country level. IFRC, together with UNFPA, led the integration of gender equity and the Leaving No One Behind principles in the CADRI Capacity Diagnosis and Planning modules.
IFRC deploys specialized expertise in response to country demand for CADRI Partnership services in the areas of disaster preparedness, emergency response, climate change adaptation, more specifically in:
- National legislation for climate-smart disaster risk reduction
- Risk assessment and planning at local level
- Community early warning action
- Community knowledge and awareness raising
