OVERVIEW: Trust in humanitarian action requires the RCRC Movement to encourage a learning culture and apply a flexible approach based on global standards and a common language within operations to improve the effectiveness of our responses. The session will present the progress and achievements of the NS Preparedness for Effective Response Americas’s Roadmap, share learnings from NS engaged in the process, examples of how PER approach, can be applied in different contexts to support local and national Red Cross actors and contributed to strengthening the NS auxiliary role. It will also showcase how an evidence-based learning process can strengthen local leadership and decision-making in response, increase the quantity and quality of resources to strengthen local expertise of responders, and ‘action’ the localization agenda. PURPOSE: 1. Provide an update of the status of NS Preparedness for Effective Response roadmap from the America region and present the progress made by NS who engaged in the process.
Learn from Bahamas and Guatemala Red Cross’ National Societies experiences in strengthening their preparedness for response mechanism.
