The 2011 support plan for the Uruguayan Red Cross (URC) was developed in a participatory process with the National Society and the secretariat, in dialogue with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Essential reference documents used include: the National Society's strategic plan 2007-2011; the tripartite agreement between the URC, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the secretariat; the Inter-American Conference recommendations; and Strategy 2020. The final plan has been approved by the URC's leadership and governance.
The present plan establishes concrete and achievable goals for the National Society, based on its identified priorities, and draws upon the Regional Representation for the Southern Cone and Brazil's areas of expertise in the region. Continuing its long-term cooperation with the URC, the secretariat will provide technical accompaniment, financial collaboration and advocacy initiatives in the areas: disaster management, health and care, and organizational development (management structures, territorial branch network, national programmes and resource mobilization). This plan also focuses on the Fundamental Principles and Values of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and gender and non-discrimination as cross-cutting issues.
The National Society and the secretariat have a shared commitment and joint responsibility to effectively and efficiently implement the 2011 support plan for the Uruguayan Red Cross. The total 2011 budget is 281,763 Swiss francs (Click here to go directly to the attached summary budget of the plan).
