This Humanitarian Action Plan has been prepared as part of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement-wide coordination and cooperation framework. These Principles and Rules for Red Cross and Red Crescent Humanitarian Assistance govern National Societies and their International Federation in international humanitarian assistance. They recognize the importance of strengthening organizational, coordination and delivery capacities of National Societies, to respond to the increasing number and complexity of disasters and the growing number of vulnerable people. They call for greater collective learning, adaptation, innovation and leadership to ensure that the Movement achieves greater humanitarian impact. They contain rules for National Societies and the Federation concerning preparedness, requests for assistance, principled response, beneficiary engagement, staff and volunteer engagement and more.
