The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has been a force for humanity for more than 100 years. As a global network of local Red Cross and Red Crescent organisations and volunteers, we have contributed to the well-being and aspirations of people experiencing vulnerability and marginalisation throughout the world, in accordance with our Fundamental Principles and values.

Through the wide and deep reach of our National Societies, we are uniquely placed to support people and communities before, during and after shocks and hazards, through National Societies’ permanent presence in communities, their role as auxiliaries to the public authorities in the humanitarian field, and their extensive network of local branches and volunteers in almost every country in the world engaging in local action.

Strategy 2030 embodies this long-standing vision and further enhances it, to ensure that the Red Cross and Red Crescent remains a dynamic global network of organisations that are fit for purpose and always there to accompany people and communities. Strategy 2030 is about the changes that will allow us to be better able to save lives, and support efforts to amplify people’s own, skills and capacities. Strategy 2030 proposes a series of transformations to achieve these goals, challenging us all to think beyond the status quo. Strategy 2030 is, above all, a strategy of hope in the power of humanity to mobilise for good and to create a better world. The values and principles of our National Societies are a powerful force for humanity: our unparalleled global volunteer base is committed to driving positive change throughout the world, to ensure that all people matter and that, collectively, we are ready and willing to make the changes that are needed so that we can all have opportunities to thrive.
