A harmonized approach to performance tracking allows Federation-wide aggregation and communication of results from the National Societies. For the rst time in its history, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has a global picture of collective achievements and areas for improvement.
In November 2009, 187 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies committed to reporting their results against common key proxy indicators (KPIs) measuring performance dimensions agreed within Strategy 2020. Over the last four years, the number of National Societies providing annual data through the Federation-wide Databank and Reporting System (FDRS) has grown incrementally.
During 2013, all the 189 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies provided data for one or more KPIs. Sixty-four per cent of the National Societies provided data on all seven KPIs, establishing a Federation-wide baseline. The baseline which is set on data from 2012 (collected in 2013) will facilitate tracking trends and measuring progress over the current decade of Strategy 2020 implementa- tion and beyond. It will enable us to answer the question: “how much are we doing, and what is the trend?” in a consistent manner.
