Along with other Red Crescent National Societies of Central Asia, National Red Crescent Society participated in an online consultation on the Creation Platforms for Humanitarian Diplomacy. The meeting was attended by the Director of the Regional Office Birgitte Bischoff Ebbesen, the Head of the IFRC Regional Office in Central Asia Seval Guzelkilinc, the Regional Head of Humanitarian Diplomacy and Relations Department Dick Klomen, as well as the Delegate for Humanitarian Diplomacy Joy Muller.

During the meeting, it was noted that the development of humanitarian diplomacy in the activities of National Societies contributes to the emergence of new opportunities and allows strengthening the potential of the organization, as a result of which National Societies will have the opportunity to transition to a leading and coordinating role on certain current goals and objectives in solving  humanitarian problems in cooperation with the international community, local authorities and population.        

In turn, the National Red Crescent Society of Turkmenistan is developing an annual plan for 2024 on humanitarian diplomacy to identify points of contact between the activities of all department of the organization, determine the Development Strategy of the organization, and search for potential partners in promoting interests, which will help the National Society in developing a policy of humanitarian diplomacy in the country.

At the meeting it was noted, that all National Societies of Central Asia located in the same region with similar problems, difficulties and challenges that arise every day, therefore we propose organizing regional-level campaigns to promote, raise awareness and interact in the field of solving humanitarian issues.

The Humanitarian Diplomacy activities carried out by National Societies in the future  will allow  consolidating the efforts of the International Red Cross and Crescent Movement in the Central Asian region to constantly stimulate, support and facilitate all forms of humanitarian activities of National Societies and to  contribute  them in every possible way, in order to prevent and alleviate human suffering by contributing thus to the maintenance and strengthening of peace throughout the world.
