The Climate Centre was established in 2002 by the Netherlands Red Cross  (NLRC) and the IFRC, and is hosted by the Netherlands Red Cross in The Hague, as a “Public Benefit Organization” (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling) under Dutch law.

Our overarching mission is to help the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and its partners reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme-weather events on vulnerable people.

The Climate Centre is one of 12 current or planned reference centres hosted by various National Societies and delegated by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies as centres of excellence in their specialist areas.
