Horn of Africa: Drought and food insecurity revised regional crises response framework - October 2011
The revised strategic framework outlines the role of IFRC offices in supporting East African Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to respond to the crises in the Horn of Africa.
The IFRC will support National Societies to:
Respond to extreme food, nutrition, water, sanitation, and health insecurity of people at risk in the short term, and wherever possible address root causes in delivery of our services
Promote early recovery strategies in the medium term
Promote livelihood resilience in the long term
Provide cross sector/integrated assistance to refugees and/or internally displaced persons (IDPs) affected by conflict and drought
Promote coordination among Movement Partners
IFRC offices will work to ensure that support enhances the capacities of East African National Societies and promotes their positions as key, national actors in drought cycle management.
