Building capacities: Participatory planning

One of the main purposes of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is to ensure that its programmes and services should first be identified by vulnerable people themselves, based on their needs. These strong participatory planning activities at local level contribute to a strong national plan that responds to new trends and needs.

This film includes many successful examples of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies organizing themselves well to communicate between all levels of planning.

In this five films series, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies profiles organizational best practices in Gender and Diversity, Resource Mobilisation, Youth and Volunteers, Participatory Planning, and Community and Branch Development. Building Capacities features insights and interviews with volunteers, beneficiaries and leaders from Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies including Australia, Cambodia, Mongolia and Nepal. The series was produced by the Asia Pacific zone under the direction of the Organizational Development unit.
