Case Studies: Red Cross Red Crescent Disaster Risk Reduction in Action
The following case studies demonstrate the Red Cross Red Crescent contribution to climate-smart disaster risk reduction action in Asia Pacific. Vulnerable individuals and communities are hardest hit by climate change and disasters. We are focusing our efforts on accompanying communities during their own journey towards resilience. We seek to work holistically at reducing vulnerability and exposure, working closely with communities to understand the hazards and vulnerabilities which are most threatening to them, and supporting local action. Reaching communities is often seen as the “last mile” of national and regional engagement, yet for us in the Red Cross Red Crescent, communities all over the world are the “first mile” for effective climate risk management, early action and preparedness.
