The Global Disaster Preparedness Center is part of the Red Cross Red Crescent Reference Centres (‘Centres’). The Centers are delegated functions of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and hosted by Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies around the world. Each Centre focuses on a specific subject or thematic area and serves to strategically harness and facilitate the exchange of knowledge that will inform future Red Cross Red Crescent operations. The Centres are uniquely placed to support National Societies through training, technical assistance, advocacy, knowledge management, research and ensuring that the resources are of the highest quality, readily accessible and adapted to local needs. The Centres are built on the IFRC founding principles and the practice and thinking of the International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, including the host National Society.
