Strengthening IFRC Responses to Internal Displacement in Disasters: Challenges and Opportunities

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies (National Societies), together with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), have a long-standing commitment to addressing situations of internal displacement and provide vital support to millions of internally displaced people (IDPs). The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement Policy on Internal Displacement provides important guidance to all components of the Movement on how to address the various aspects of preventing, responding to and facilitating durable solutions to internal displacement caused by disasters, including those related to climate change, armed conflict and other situations of violence.

To better understand this role in disaster settings, the IFRC migration and displacement unit commissioned research to capture the ways in which IFRC and National Societies contribute to addressing internal displacement in disaster settings issues and to identify opportunities for further development. This report is a summary of the main findings and recommendations emerging from the research.
