Red Cross/ Red Crescent Climate Centre

The Climate Training Kit

Our Climate Training Kit was created in close collaboration with the IFRC’s Department of Community Preparedness and Risk Reduction, with support from the Canadian Red Cross.

It includes contributions from many National Societies around the world and provides a huge range of educational materials to build the capacity of Red Cross Red Crescent Movement staff and volunteers, as well as links to existing IFRC products and guides.

Interactive, flexible learning modules – exercises, games, film clips, presentations, reading materials and case studies – were designed for use, especially, in training workshops on the humanitarian impacts of climate change.

They are also intended to support awareness and participation in dialogue with governments and other stakeholders.

The kit supports National Societies in building the capacity of staff and volunteers to address climate-related risks as well as issues on health and humanitarian diplomacy.

Requests for assistance with using the kit and Spanish-language version of some components can be emailed to
