Winter shelters for rural herder communities

Mongolian Red Cross Society (MRCS) has been implementing a community-based disaster risk reduction project since 2014, with support from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the Australian Red Cross.

Its purpose is to strengthen the collective capacity of MRCS, government authorities and communities, in localized disaster preparation and response across each province in Mongolia.
