For the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) the concept of community resilience represents a unique opportunity as this approach in many ways captures the
totality of what the IFRC is working to achieve. Although their efforts may not have been characterized as ‘strengthening community resilience,’ this is in fact what many National Societies have been doing
over the course of many decades by supporting their local communities.
This framework has the principle objective to: ‘Establish a foundation on which all IFRC programmes,
projects, interventions and actions, across the contexts, which contribute to the strengthening of resilient communities can be created, developed and sustained.’
