Humanitarian Diplomacy

Pursuing Humanitarian Diplomacy to prevent and reduce vulnerability

The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement humanitarian diplomacy is concerned with persuading decision makers and opinion leaders to act, at all times. In the interest of vulnerable people, and with full respect for our Fundamental Principles.

As a Movement component, the RCSS will continue to strengthen and sustain its relationship with relevant institutions and organisations nationally, regionally and internationally to ensure better support and access to humanitarian services whenever required. Through humanitarian diplomacy we will contribute for better information about the work of the RCSS to all partners, stakeholders.

Emphasis will be placed for better understanding of the the auxiliary status of the National Society amongst public authorities , including the roles and responsibilities of all partners under the status.

The RCSS will also review its regulatory framework to ensure  that an enabling environment is created for effective participation and efficient use  and mobilization of resources under its auxiliary status, to the benefit of the most vulnerable.

The National Society will contribute to the effective functioning of the IFRC. This will be done through  representation and participation in the various forums deriving policies and strategic directions and most importantly in the sharing of information and best practices of our humanitarian interventions through existing mechanism put in place by the IFRC. It will  continue to allow itself to be guided in its humanitarian endaevours by the Movement tools and policies.
