Climate change is of great concern not only to scientist but also humanitarian institutions. The increases in disasters worldwide due to climatic conditions are taking its toll on human lives and property. This new phenomena poses a difficult challenge for humanitarian organizations like the Red Cross movement and this affects the work of the Red Cross. Based on the outcome of a vulnerability and capacity assessment, there will be an integration of climate activities into existing programmes. Community based resilient programme will be developed and implemented at community levels with the involvement of stakeholders and community members.
