Case Studies: Red Cross Red Crescent Disaster Risk Reduction in Action


The following case studies demonstrate the Red Cross Red Crescent’s 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. Crises are rarely the result of one driver of risk – it is the combination of hazards, the exposure, and the vulnerability of people that will determine how severe and protracted the consequences may be. Climate change exacerbates this situation. We seek to work holistically at reducing vulnerability and exposure, working closely with communities to understand the hazards and vulnerabilities that are most threatening to them, and supporting local action.
