Business Preparedness Initiative Toolkit

This toolkit enables Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies to implement or enhance their outreach to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the category of businesses most vulnerable to crises and disasters. Using these tools, RC/RC National Societies can implement outreach programs, deliver workshops, and design marketing campaigns to stimulate SME preparedness with business continuity plans, employment protection, and strengthened supply chains. This toolkit is for Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies interested in establishing partnerships with local SMEs in order to promote and support expanded business preparedness.
