Istanbul and beyond: Perspectives and pledges of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement on the occasion of the World Humanitarian Summit

IFRC/ICRC, 17 May 2016
1.2MB

For more than 150 years, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (the Movement) has been driven by the power of humanity. From building food se- curity among drought-affected people in Kenya to caring for the elderly in Australia, from treating the sick and the wounded in Yemen to searching for victims of the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal, we work to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found. Our model of action – grounded in our Fundamental Principles, our community-based volunteers, our specific relationship with Governments in the hu- manitarian field, our proximity to the people we work with, and our global networks of solidarity – has brought protection and assistance to millions of people in crisis.

Among the proposed recommendations is a “Grand Bargain” between major donors and humanitarian organizations that seeks greater efficiency and improved incentives in financing humanitarian action.

IFRC Annual Report 2014

IFRC, 5 January 2016
2.5MB

2014 was a challenging year for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and for the wider humanitarian community. In Syria, South Sudan and the Central African Republic, the year ended as it started with millions of people displaced and affected by conflicts that show no sign of coming to an end.
