The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has provided technical support and funding to Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) to help achieve the goals defined under NRCS’s fifth development plan (2008-2010). These goals are aligned with IFRC’s Global Agenda goals which are as follows:
Enhance the disaster management capacities of vulnerable communities and provide effective response to disasters, through the strengthening of the preparedness and response systems of the NRCS (Global Agenda goal 1).
Improve the health status of targeted communities and reduce their vulnerability through community based health and care systems (Global Agenda goal 2).
Reduce the socio-economic vulnerability of communities, strengthen the capacity of NRCS at all levels and increase self-reliance to better address needs in the communities (Global Agenda goal 3).
Increase awareness and understanding of the Fundamental Principles of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement and humanitarian values, to promote respect for diversity and human dignity through service to vulnerable people (Global Agenda goal 4).
