International Federation approach

The National Societies in cooperation with the IFRC should prioritise disaster preparedness and integrate it into their overall programming efforts. Implementation of effective preparedness measures contribute towards building safer, resilient and better prepared households and communities, thus reducing existing and future risk and vulnerabilities.

It is the role of the IFRC and their relevant partners with governments and other partners to improve the lives of vulnerable people who are at risk from situations that threaten their survival or their capacity to live with an acceptable level of socio-economic security and human dignity.
