Description : Representatives from 168 States joined 187 Red Cross Red Crescent Societies, at the International Conference in Geneva which closed today. The International Conference, held every four years since 1867, brings together States party to the Geneva Conventions and global Red Cross Red Crescent representatives.
The International Conference is a unique opportunity for decision-makers to discuss the world's most pressing humanitarian issues and adopt resolutions that guide future humanitarian action. Previous decisions have contributed to the strengthening of international humanitarian law (IHL) and legal frameworks for disasters whilst ensuring safe environments for volunteering. This year, key issues on the agenda included trust, mental health, climate change, pandemic preparedness, data protection and migration.
"The International Conference is a unique place for the Red Cross and Red Crescent to discuss critical humanitarian challenges with governments," said Peter Maurer, the ICRC president. "The fact that we had 168 States actively participating shows that governments have a strategic interest in responding to humanitarian crises and engaging with the Movement."
In an era of increasing scrutiny of the humanitarian sector, in-depth discussions on trust, integrity, accountability were central to the three-day Conference. "Being trusted by the people we serve is critical to being able to restore family links, to ensuring lifesaving access, to working with and alongside communities," said Francesco Rocca, president of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
