In December 2015, representatives of nearly every government in the world, the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, and partner organizations will gather in Geneva for the 32nd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.
The Conference, which meets every four years to reflect and take decisions on pressing humanitarian issues, is the premier global forum to enhance and inspire humanitarian debates. It is where States, as parties to the Geneva Conventions and partners in humanitarian action, undertake joint commitments with the Movement.
These commitments include, among others, strengthening international humanitarian law and furthering its implementation, addressing emerging risks threatening human life, strengthening legal frameworks for disasters, ensuring enabling environments for volunteering, and nurturing the auxiliary role of National Societies to their public authorities in the humanitarian field.
