Assessing restoring family links needs: handbook for National Societies and the ICRC

By ICRC (Author)
Published : 2011


The Handbook’s purpose is therefore to provide those in charge of RFL activities with guidelines and tools for assessing RFL needs. It draws extensively on Guidelines for assessment in emergencies (March 2008), thus ensuring that the Movement’s components use a consistent methodological approach and the same vocabulary in their programmes.

The Handbook applies in international and non-international armed conflicts, in situations of internal violence, in natural and man-made disasters, in humanitarian contexts such as those caused by international migratory flows and even in non-crisis situations, or times of peace.
