With this Climate Guide for the Red Cross and Red Crescent we aim to share the experiences of more than 40 National Societies who, in the last five years have started to address climate change in their work. Their experiences are as diverse as our planetÂ´s weather and as wide-ranging as the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement itself. Yet many similarities shine through. Climate change is new for all of us. We all need an open mind to learn and establish new partnerships. But instead of doing something entirely new and different, we should base our responses on what we already do best, integrating the changing risks in our efforts to serve the most vulnerable people.
