Healthy ageing toolkit

IFRC, 21 November 2016

By 2050, the number of individuals aged 60 years or above will have tripled from 600 million in 2000 to two billion; 80 per cent of them will live in low-  or middle-income countries. While these statistics highlight the scale of the challenge society faces, an ageing population provides countless opportunities. Older people are, and will continue to be, vital assets to their families, friends and communities. The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) continues to call for the eradication of all forms of ageism that deny older people dignity, decrease access to care and the right to a just quality of life.

Management of dead bodies after disasters: A field manual for first responders second edition

IFRC, 1 November 2016

This manual has two aims: first, to promote the proper and dignified management of dead bodies and, second, to facilitate their identification. Following many disasters, and certainly larger ones, the retrieval and immediate management of dead bodies is done by local authorities, organizations and communities, residents and volunteers. This is because forensic experts may not arrive for some days, or even longer; and in some contexts, there are no forensic experts at all. Consequently, this manual focuses on practical recom- mendations for those who are on the spot or are able to respond in the immediate aftermath of a disaster – i.e. first responders.

Unseen, Unheard Gender-Based Violence in Disasters Asia-Pacific case studies

IFRC, 26 October 2016

Working on gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and response is not a new  theme. Governments, international organisations, NGOs, foundations and other civil society actors have tirelessly been working on raising awareness and implementing programmes to assist women and girls and sometimes men and boys to be active in preventing violence at home, in communities and contributing to policy change on a national level. GBV occurrence in conflict situations has also been widely researched, although remains a sensitive and difficult topic to  address.

Habitat III - Humanitarian crises and the city

IFRC, 13 October 2016

War rages in Syria. The earth heaves in Ecua- dor. Ebola spreads in West Africa. As we try to make sense of these events and struggle with how to address them, how many of us consider urban planning and policies as part of the solution? The humanitarian impacts of disasters, both natural and man-made, are increasingly concentrated in cities.
