International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

Groupe URD is conducting a study for the IFRC to analyse the International Movement of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent’s tools for responding to the future challenges of humanitarian action, and particularly large-scale disasters.

The study is looking at two areas:

  • analysis of future risks in order to anticipate the internal implications for humanitarian programmes.
  • analysis of existing Red Cross/Red Crescent tools in order to determine if these are appropriate and how they might be improved, if necessary.
