About us

The Climate Centre, a Public Benefit Organization under Netherlands law, is a specialist reference centre of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
 
Our mission is to help the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and its partners reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme-weather events on vulnerable people.

Staffed largely by climate scientists, the Centre provides strategically important knowledge and advice on climate-smart practice throughout the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and beyond.

Our support for National Societies and the IFRC focuses on climate information for disaster preparedness and response, food security and health, training and technical back-up.

We work with a huge range of humanitarian partners, climate specialists and non-specialists, principally Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies and the Geneva-based IFRC and ICRC.
