Long Term Planning Framework - Europe Zone 2012-2015
- Who are we?
The IFRC Europe Zone is one of the five decentralised geographic areas, with several regional and country offices, covering the European continent in the broadest political meaning, i.e. 52 countries including the successor states of the former Soviet Union in Central Asia and the Caucasus.
The Europe Zone Office structure is based on three management lines: 1) Programmes and Operations consisting of Disaster Management, Health and Care, and Finance; 2) National Society Knowledge Development and Support Services including Organizational Development, IT, Human Resources,
Administration, Legal Issues, and PMER; 3) The Office of the Director of Zone with a strengthened Humanitarian Diplomacy and Principles and Values function.
Local representations operate at the following locations: the Regional Representation in Moscow covering all territories of the Russian Federation, the Regional Representation in Almaty covering Kazakhstan,
Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, and several Country Representations covering Serbia and Montenegro,
Bosnia-Herzegovina, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.
Finally, we have an office in Kosovo dealing with two Red Cross Organisations. There is also regular liaising with the Red Cross EU Office in Brussels.
