National Society Preparedness for Effective Response
Preparedness for Effective Response (PER) is a cyclical approach designed to empower National Societies to become more creative and innovative in their disaster management actions, and contribute to the coordination of national and global response systems.
Private sector preparedness
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.
In the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement context, data readiness is the ability of National Societies to use quality and timely information to influence operations and planning to respond effectively to disasters. The IFRC and National Societies are thinking more critically about data and how they can leverage it better to improve our work. Through data readiness, organizations will be equipped to use quality and timely information to influence operations and planning, all with the goal of improving our ability to respond effectively to disasters.
