Sommet virtuel sur le climat | Climate:Red

Media partner

Au début de cette année, le Mouvement international de la Croix-Rouge et du Croissant-Rouge a publié un nouveauPlan de lutte contre la crise climatique ambitieux, dans lequel il s’engage à amplifier considérablement son action collective et à intégrer le climat dans toutes ses activités. Le sommet Climate:Red représente une occasion de « s’attaquer » à la réalisation de ce plan, car il offre un espace pour apprendre, échanger, explorer et élaborer des stratégies en vue de déterminer comment nous pouvons nous soutenir mutuellement afin de réduire l’impact humanitaire de la crise climatique et d’aider les populations à s’adapter. Nous encourageons les personnes qui souhaitent proposer des séances à s’inspirer du Plan de lutte contre la crise climatique du Mouvement et de la Stratégie 2030 de la Fédération internationale et à se concentrer sur les quatre axes suivants visant à accélérer nos progrès.

What is the RCRC doing on climate? And what more do we need to do?

These problem- and solution-oriented sessions will be based on experiences and lessons learned, and seek to accelerate action across the Red Cross Red Crescent network.
What can we share and give to others? How can we support volunteers and communities we work with to address climate risks?

These sessions will focus on capacity building, awareness-raising, community engagement and local leadership.
How can we leverage our auxiliary role and partnerships to influence change and raise ambition globally?

Focus of these sessions will be on policy engagements and humanitarian diplomacy from local to global level.
What changes are needed in the ways we work? How can we be fit for the future in a changing climate?

In these sessions we will look at innovations, greening and organisational changes.

ThemesBrief description and link to resources
Climate-smart DRR
(disaster risk reduction)
How are National Societies and partners reducing vulnerability and exposure of people to climate impacts through climate-smart DRR? Sessions under this theme will  explore actions to raise communities’ awareness of climate risks, how to use  climate and weather information in assessing risk and vulnerability in designing projects, and how to sustainably address rising risks of climate change at the community level.

Climate-smart disaster risk reduction: PREVENT. REDUCE. PREPARE. 
Ambitions to address the climate crisis 

Climate Smart Programming

Forecast-based financing and EWEA
(early warning early action)
How can we enable early action through the use of forecast-based financing and other anticipatory financing tools? Sessions under this theme will explore how in-depth forecast information and risk analysis can be used to anticipate disasters, prevent their impact, if possible, and reduce human suffering and losses.

Forecast-based Financing
HealthHow does climate change impact human health? These sessions will unpack how to integrate climate considerations into health programmes; anticipate the health-related consequences of climate change and environmental degradation; and scale up health literacy, hygiene promotion, and community preparedness interventions for climate-related diseases. Sessions can also focus on how to use climate information to anticipate, prepare for and reduce the impacts of climate-related health emergencies.

Ambitions to address the climate crisis
Climate-resilient livelihoods and services, and sustainable water
resource management
How can we support climate-resilient livelihoods and promote sustainable water resource management in a changing climate? Sessions will explore how we can work with communities to strengthen the resilience of their livelihoods. This includes supporting communities to adopt climate-smart practices combining traditional and scientific knowledge and technologies, maximizing the use of weather and climate information in diversifying their livelihoods activities, as well as ensuring that essential services are resilient to hazards. These session may also look at how to use climate change projections to strengthen water resource management practices in areas which are, or will be, water-stressed, and seek demand-side solution

Ambitions to address the climate crisis
ConflictHow do climate risk and conflict interact? Sessions under this theme will unpack these dynamics and how they put pressure on at risk communities. Sessions can also tackle how conflicts, especially when protracted, erode and challenge institution-building, and states’, groups’, and individuals’ ability to handle, adapt to and plan for climate change.

The impacts of climate change on humanitarian needs
When rain turns to dust: climate change, conflict and humanitarian action
Double Vulnerabilities - ODI, ICRC, RCCC
Climate displacementWhat actions can we take to address the rising incidence of climate-related displacement? Sessions under this theme can cover what is needed for better mapping, understanding and predicting climate-related population movements; preparing for and responding to the humanitarian needs of climate-related displaced communities while addressing the needs of host communities; and enhancing support for climate-smart durable solutions to enable safe, voluntary and dignified return, local integration or resettlement according to the wishes and priorities of displaced people.

Disasters and Displacement in a Changing Climate
Climate and Disaster Displacement: The Importance of Disaster Law and Policy
Ambitions to address the climate crisis
UrbanWhat is the relationship between urbanization and climate change? Sessions will unpack the unique challenges of operating in urban contexts where the adverse impacts of disasters, climate change, protracted conflicts and pandemics will be acutely felt, putting a greater number of people at risk, reversing hard-won development gains, and forcing tens of millions of urban residents to face increased vulnerabilities.

Integrating climate change and urban risks into the VCA
Ambitions to address the climate crisis
Youth and volunteers How we can leverage and build our volunteer and youth networks to reduce the impacts of the climate crisis? Sessions will unpack this question and consider both new volunteer and youth engagement platforms and entry points for current volunteers to deepen their engagement, as well as through empowering more young people and encouraging a wider audience to volunteer in climate action by expanding/diversifying the types of volunteer opportunities, including crowdsourcing ideas from volunteers and enabling volunteers to self-organise.

Ambitions to address the climate crisis
Private sectorWhat is the RCRC’s current and future engagement with the private sector in reducing the impacts of climate change and extreme-weather events on vulnerable people? Sessions under this theme will discuss the innovations, products, services, political influence, capacity to shape behaviour, and investments of both multinational corporations and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are essential for enhancing the resilience of marginalized and vulnerable communities across the world in the face of climate variability and weather extremes.

Companies and Climate Resilience
Influencing investments, laws, policies and plans (local to global)What is the RCRC’s global and regional engagement and advocacy in climate change policy space? Sessions under this theme will consider our key policy asks and how to deliver them including the ways the National Societies are supporting their governments in shaping national and local laws, policies and plans to meet their commitments under the Paris Agreement.

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Framework for Climate Action Towards 2020
Ambitions to address the climate crisis
Nature-based solutionsHow can we pursue and scale-up the use of nature-based and ecosystem-based solutions, such as mangroves and wetlands, to reduce risks and contribute to climate change mitigation? Sessions under this topic will include focus on innovative approaches, challenges and opportunities for doing so as well as key partnerships needed.

Ambitions to address the climate crisis
Sustainability, greening,
mitigation and environment
What are the different ways to green our way of working, to mitigate climate change, to develop and promote green response options and to measurably reduce our own carbon footprint and environmental impact? Join these sessions to find out.

International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Framework for Climate Action Towards 2020
Ambitions to address the climate crisis
GenderHow does climate change exacerbate existing vulnerabilities that can lead to further marginalisation of vulnerable groups? This theme will focus particularly on how women, youth and vulnerable groups can be effective agents of change for both mitigation and adaptation.
