Contingency Planning Guide

Source(s):  International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

This document provides an overview of the key elements of contingency planning to ensure that Red Cross Red Crescent disaster response is consistent and of a high quality. This guide is aimed at assisting National Society and IFRC staff responsible for developing contingency plans at the local, national, regional or global levels.

It is essential to develop contingency plans in consultation and cooperation with those who will have to implement or approve them. This document provides guidelines, not strict rules; planning priorities 1 S will differ according to the context and scope of any given situation. 

This guide breaks contingency planning down into five main steps. Each of of them will be analyzed and covered in a separate chapter.

  1. Prepare
  2. Analyse
  3. Develop
  4. Implement
  5. Review
