Servicios: The IFRC’s secretariat supports governance and the development of National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies through international relief actions, alliances and partnerships, international humanitarian diplomacy, including international advocacy for the interests of National Societies. IFRC’s specific contribution to sustainable development is through strengthening community resilience. This is the ability to adapt and cope with recurrent -or prolonged- disasters and crises, as well as with wider socio-economic changes, which enables people to protect and build on the development gains that have already been made. The IFRC’s work in climate change adaptation is through scaling up disaster risk reduction measures and strengthening traditional methods of coping with disasters that are relevant in particular environmental contexts. IFRC also contributes to mitigating the progression of climate change through advocacy and social mobilization to promote sustainable community development.
