Guide to climate-smart programmes and operations

This guide, produced by the IFRC and Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, is designed to help Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies make their programmes and operations climate-smart.

Climate-smart means using climate information across timescales in designing and/or adjusting all our programmes and operations. In doing so, programmes and operations ensure that, at a minimum, they do not place people at increased risk in the future considering likely new climate extremes and growing vulnerabilities. In addition, this approach offers the initial steps in the Climate Action Journey for the National Societies to identify locally led adaptation needs and support communities to anticipate, absorb and adapt to climate change.

You can download the full guide in English, French and Spanish below, or download a summary of the guide in English here.
