Activities of the Programme

The Disaster Law Programme works in three areas:

1.  Technical Assistance

Collaborating with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and other partners to assist governments in strengthening their domestic legal preparedness for disasters.

2.  Capacity Building

Building the capacity of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to advise their governments on the development of disaster management law.

3. Advocacy, dissemination and research

Building partnerships at the international and regional level on legal preparedness, disseminating the IDRL Guidelines and fostering new and innovative research.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian organization, with 190 member National Societies . As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
