Programme summary

In facilitating the implementation of Strategy 2020 of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies (IFRC), a core focus is on building strong National Societies. This is fundamental to enabling sustainable service delivery in meeting the needs of vulnerable people worldwide. The mission of the Learning and organisational development department is to stimulate new humanitarian and development thinking and help National Societies to change and grow. As part of this, the Capacity Building Fund (CBF) is a multi-year mechanism that provides technical and financial support to targeted National Society leaders in understanding their organisational challenges, and then planning and implementing self-development plans for growth.
