Start here for a short tour of the guide and climate compatible development
The Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Guide presents five years of experiences from more than thirty national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, particularly in developing countries. It relates the experiences of Red Cross and Red Crescent staff and volunteers all around the world, in an attempt to understand and address the risks of climate change.
The guide begins with basic information about climate change: the scientific consensus, the humanitarian consequences, and the general implications for Red Cross and Red Crescent. This is followed by six thematic modules:
Each module begins with a background section of real-life Red Cross and Red Crescent experiences and perspectives, followed by a 'how-to' section with specific step-by-step guidance.
