4. Emergencies within CARE’s strategic plan
CARE Vision 2030
Humanitarian Action (SDG 1, 5 & 11)
In the last decade we have seen an increased need for humanitarian action due to disasters, protracted conflict and global pandemics. Climate change, fragile states and the proliferation of viruses will only exacerbate this need in the years to 2030. CARE is a dual-mandated organization: we deliver life-saving humanitarian assistance and adapt our rich development programs for innovation, implementation and scale in fragile and complex contexts to support some of the most marginalized and vulnerable populations. By 2030, CARE supports transforming the humanitarian sector by putting gender at the center of our responses, ensuring conflict-sensitive community-led interventions, using market-based approaches that protect people’s dignity, and building resilience and social cohesion through our work in communities before, during, and after an emergency. Our work in CARE’s core humanitarian sectors —shelter, WASH, food, and sexual and reproductive health and rights —will always seek to contribute to both gender equality and immediate humanitarian assistance.
Our 2030 Goal
CARE provides quality, gender-focused and localized humanitarian assistance to 10% of those affected in major crises, reaching at least 50 million people by 2030.
