The Centre for Institutional Disaster Preparedness (CREPD, by its Spanish acronym) aims to support the components of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement by strengthening capacity building in disaster preparedness among National Societies. The aim is to develop methodologies, tools, learning techniques and harmonization processes considering the National Societies’ expertise and best practices and under the coordination of the IFRC Regional Office for the Americas.
As the result of the joint work of National Societies’ technical staff and volunteers, the IFRC Secretariat, and the Canadian Red Cross within the framework of the “Strengthening Emergency Response Capacity in the Americas” project (CREA, by its Spanish Acronym), several innovative tools have been developed to contribute to strengthening local response systems and promoting organized institutional development.
