Road map to community resilience

The Road Map to Community Resilience has been developed by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to guide staff and volunteers and their operational partners in helping communities become more resilient to threats.

The Road Map provides step-by-step guidance on how to operationalize the IFRC’s Framework for Community Resilience (FCR).

The FCR aims to guide and support the work of National Societies through the following three strategic objectives:

Supporting National Societies’ efforts to assist communities as they adopt risk-informed, holistic approaches to address their underlying vulnerabilities;
Supporting National Societies’ efforts that encourage communities to adopt demand-driven, people-centred approaches to community resilience strengthening;
Supporting National Societies to be connected to communities – being available to everyone, everywhere to prevent and reduce human suffering.
This document concludes with a call to practitioners to capture, record and share their experiences of community resilience strengthening in order to contribute to IFRC's programming and resources, aimed at improving the lives of the most vulnerable.
