Programmatic directions for the Red Cross and Red Crescent in building urban community resilience in the Asia Pacific Region
The Asia Pacific Zone of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) launched this study in order to identify a role for the Red Cross and Red Crescent in urban community resilience programming. The study is completed by EMI (Earthquakes and Megacities Initiative) in 2011.
Two inter-linked objectives guided the research process:
1. To analyse the urban context, existing knowledge and resources relevant to
the overall purpose of this study through a comprehensive desk study,
interviews with key informants and workshops with stakeholders;
2. Based on the findings of the analytical work, to develop a guidance
document that will help the IFRC to determine a place for the Red Cross and
Red Crescent services in urban DRR and response.
