Resources and topics

An overview of climate change related news items relevant to the work of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.

A list of publications issued by either a team member of the Climate Centre or the Secretariat of the IFRC, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

Background information about the science of climate change, with a focus on the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the impacts of climate change on the risk of natural disasters.

Good practices
Information about climate risk reduction programmes in (amongst others) the Solomon Islands, Seychelles, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Colombia and the Pacific.

Newsletter archive
A record of the Climate Centre's quarterly newsletter.

A source of information about tools and country profiles, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and early warning.

Resources in other languages
This section has been created to provide multi-language resource materials on climate-related topics. Please note we have not translated many publications up to this date, but we are working with IFRC zone offices worldwide to get more resources translated and therefore we will regularly update this section.

Minimum Standards
The Minimum Standards are a living document containing practical approaches to implementing climate-smart DRR activities in a way that is achievable by many communities with relatively limited external support.
