What we do
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) works worldwide to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by conflict and armed violence.
We take action in response to emergencies and at the same time promote respect for international humanitarian law. We are an independent and neutral organization, and our mandate stems essentially from the Geneva Conventions of 1949.
We work closely with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and with their International Federation in order to ensure a concerted, rational and rapid humanitarian response to the needs of the victims of armed conflict or any other situation of internal violence.
We direct and coordinate the international activities conducted in these situations.
The ICRC defines Economic Security as the status of an individual, household or community that is able to cover its life and livelihoods obligatory expenditures in a sustainable manner, consistent with its environment, culture and customs.
Within its global Economic Security approach in conflict affected countries, the ICRC implements Relief, Livelihood and Rehabilitation Programs in order to improve, restore or maintain food and economic security at household level.
To achieve this objective Economic Security uses a combination of different interventions and modalities, such as cash and voucher programs, microeconomic initiatives, agricultural and livestock programs, and relief items distributions.
The ICRC nutritionist is responsible for advising and supporting EcoSec teams to develop nutrition-sensitive approaches in EcoSec programs, integrated into the various stages of the project cycle.
The ICRC nutritionist is responsible for designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating nutrition- specific programs.
They conceives and supervises interventions to restore, protect, or improve the food consumption and nutritional status people deprived of freedom.
They participate to the treatment of malnutrition in primary health centers, hospitals or places of detention. This should be done in compliance with ICRC's guidelines and standards.
