Rio+20 - Red Cross Red Crescent urges investment in resilience and women

Source(s):  PR Newswire Association LLC.

'As part of our investment to build resilience, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is committed to allocating up to 10% of appeals for disaster risk reduction,' said an IFRC statement on Rio+20, reported by PR Newswire. IFRC is calling on others to financially support long term resilience building. The statement also draws attention to connections between food security and women's rights and goes on to state: "Building resilience creates strong communities; strong communities create strong economies and ultimately sustain development. Bottom line, building resilience is key to protecting long-term development gains."
