Head of Foresight, Resource Mobilization Division (REM)

What we do

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) responds to worldwide humanitarian needs through its global network of delegations.

The ICRC is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of war and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance.

In order to ensure predictable, sustainable and quality funding for its operations, the ICRC has set itself the goal to diversify the source of income, increasing the share from private fundraising streams and developing high-

value partnerships and strategic collaborations. In a context of evolutions in the external environment and volatile humanitarian funding, private sectors actors have become essential partners for providing resources beyond cash.

The Foresight pillar is part of the Resource Mobilization Division in the Financial Resources & Logistics Department of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).


The Foresight team drives and informs private sector engagement to diversify and maximize ICRC’s income from private and public sources.
