The Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Guide presents experience from staff and volunteers in more than 30 National Societies in developing countries trying to understand and address the risks of climate change.
The 140-page guide begins with the basics of climate change: the scientific consensus, the humanitarian consequences of a changing climate, and the implications for the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement.
This is followed by six thematic modules: Getting started, Dialogues, Communications, Disaster management, Community-based disaster risk reduction and Health.
Each module begins with real-life Red Cross Red Crescent experience and perspectives, followed by a “how-to” section with step-by-step guidance.
The guide is also available in Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish.
