Red Cross/ Red Crescent Climate Centre

Resources & games

The Climate Centre has developed a wide range of tools, resources and educational games to help Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies around the world be climate-smart in their decision-making and risk-reduction work, including these fact sheets for the BRACED programme.

Our Climate Training Kit for Red Cross Red Crescent staff and volunteers includes interactive modules with exercises, games, film clips, presentations, reading material and case studies.

The Minimum standards for climate-smart disaster risk reduction (DRR) serve as an essential bridge between national climate policy and local capacity for DRR.

Over the past few years, the Climate Centre and its partners have designed at least 45 games on a wide range of humanitarian issues: disaster preparedness, gender, food security, climate information, health, road safety and the management of urban waste.

Across five continents, farmers, schoolchildren, Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers, meteorologists, students, government officials, climate policy negotiators, city-dwellers, staff of development banks and donors have experienced the power of learning through educational games.

The Climate Guide, first published in 2007, details years of experience from more than 30 National Societies and describes the work of Red Cross Red Crescent staff and volunteers trying to address climate risks.
