45 minutes | How can we decarbonise social and humanitarian actions?

The climate crisis is already having devastating effects on the health & humanitarian sector. On the frontline, the Red Cross Red Crescent network is anticipating future adverse effects of climate change, while learning from local actors in the implementation of low-carbon solutions. But how can the aid sector reduce its own carbon footprint? Which solutions have already been tested on the field?
