Red Cross/ Red Crescent Climate Guide in Arabic

25 November 2009
by Red Cross/ Red Crescent Climate Centre

The Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Guide presents five years of experiences from more than thirty national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, in particular in developing countries. It relates the experiences of Red Cross and Red Crescent staff and volunteers all around the world trying to understand and address the risks of climate change.

The guide begins with the basics about climate change: the scientific consensus, the humanitarian consequences, and the general implications for the Red Cross and Red Crescent. This is followed by six thematic modules: Getting started, Dialogues, Communications, Disaster management, Community-based disaster risk reduction and Health. Each module begins with a background section with real-life Red Cross and Red Crescent experiences and perspectives, followed by a 'how-to' section with specific step-by-step guidance.

The 161-page guide is available in English, French and in Russian. Spanish will be available shortly.
