Palestine Red Crescent Society – reducing risk through VCA

In 1999-2000, the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) embarked on a 6-month VCA, which assessed communities’ perceptions of the hazards most likely to occur, their needs and the resources available to prepare for and mitigate the impacts of these hazards – whether major disasters or daily challenges. In September 2000, the Palestinian territories erupted into the second Intifada (uprising) against Israel. From the outset, the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) proved well-prepared – all the better for having just completed a comprehensive VCA. Published in 2003.
