Disaster Law and the auxiliary role in the Middle East & North Africa

25 June, 2024
The workshop will introduce IFRC Disaster Law to the Middle East and North Africa, its scope of work, objectives, tools, and the support it can offer the National Societies.

e are pleased to invite you to attend a webinar on the “Disaster Law and the Auxiliary Role in the MENA region,” which will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, from 12:00 to 13:30 (Beirut time).

  • Disaster law: IFRC Disaster Law works around the world with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, governments, and regional disaster risk management organisations to strengthen disaster governance, through the development and implementation of disaster and emergency-related laws, policies and plans.
  • Auxiliary Role: IFRC Disaster Law helps National Societies strengthen the understanding and the recognition of their role as “auxiliaries to the public authorities in the humanitarian field”, which can contribute - if well recognized - to reinforce their collaboration with domestic authorities, and their ability to address global challenges such as climate change, migration, health and food security.

The meeting will include a presentation on the scope of work under each theme, with a focus on the support we can offer to each National Society in the MENA region.
