5 Global challenges

Examples of change

Edgeryders: collaboration, experimentation and community impact

This is a change because it is a distributed, collective network and think tank that brings together an open, online community of activists, social innovators, artists, makers and thought leaders to collaborate on projects for social good.

7 Transformations

The consultations indicate seven potential transformations that the IFRC network will need to embrace in order to rise to the 5 global challenges.

The humanitarian system has significantly widened in recent years to embrace new types of action, and this expanded community is connected to, and interacts with, many other global systems. The Red Cross and Red Crescent is an important part of this process, but our system does not stand alone. In the coming decade the Red Cross and Red Crescent will significantly widen our network, partnering and aligning with a wide range of diverse actors locally, regionally and globally and particularly opening ourselves up to those that have traditionally been on the ‘outside’ of the mainstream humanitarian network.

We will strive to be a good partner and enter into purposeful partnerships, coalitions and alignment with others for impact and joint problem solving. 

Our distributed network will prioritise shared knowledge and find ways to build collective intelligence. This will require learning from and partnering with others how to maximise knowledge systems across a highly distributed network, and more open approaches and innovation that can connect people and make knowledge accessible.

    Disasters will increase and the need for all partners in the humanitarian field to contribute towards resource mobilization is encouraged so we can provide necessarily for the need of our most affected population
