International Medical Corps (IMC)

International Medical Corps (IMC) delivers high- quality health and social determinants of health programming to transform lives, build resilient communities and bring impact at scale. We are currently engaged in an organisation-wide process to adapt our programmes to the realities of climate crises. As a humanitarian organisation working with communities at extreme risk of climate hazards, it is incumbent on us to respond to the disruption that climate change will cause to mitigate impact of the hazards, strengthen system readiness and overall preparedness and response measures with communities, local partners, and government.

IMC’s climate adaptive programming includes the assessment of climate risks at the country level using a tailored vulnerability, hazard, and risk assessment tool, followed by the identification of measures to respond to these risks. While the initial phase involves a focus on ‘climate proofing’, we also aim to strengthen systems and community resilience approaches through climate adaptive programming. Integral with our design and implementation process, we will generate evidence and a learning agenda, which will contribute to both internal and global knowledge sharing around promising interventions for climate mitigation and adaptation.

Supporting the following commitments:

  • Conduct climate change and health vulnerability and adaptation assessments (V&As) at population level and/or health care facility level.
  • Develop a health national adaptation plan (HNAP) informed by the health V&A, which forms part of the National Adaptation Plan.

We have recently launched our program focused on climate proofing and adaptation. Please visit our website for updates on our progress and upcoming developments.
