PRESS RELEASE 170
The Spaniard Mercedes Babé, elected as a member of the Standing Commission of the Red Cross and Red Crescent
12/12/2019
Spain has taken part this week in Geneva in the 33rd International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, at which Mercedes Babé, a member of the 9th General Assembly of the Spanish Red Cross, was elected to the Standing Commission.

Together with the Spanish Red Cross, at this edition of the International Conference, our country has presented six commitments which include cross-cutting focuses based on the adoption of gender perspectives, age and diversity, as well as on the protection of people in situations of particular vulnerability.

Accordingly, Spain has reiterated its commitment to international humanitarian law, undertaking to guarantee to strengthen it and to provide training in international humanitarian law at different public bodies. It has also committed to continue fighting impunity for war crimes, and to strengthening international criminal justice. Another priority pillar is care for children who are victims of conflicts, committing to the universalisation of the Safe Schools Declaration, after having hosted the 3rd International Conference on Safe Schools in Palma de Mallorca back in May.

In addition, Spain will revise the legislation applicable in cases of disaster so that climate factors are taken into account. It has also undertaken to work, together with the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, to strengthen operational and effective local humanitarian parties.
 
Spain will remain committed to the protection of the Medical Mission, whose work is fundamental. Lastly, our country is committed to the work of the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission.

This set of commitments will be materialised though the drafting of a National Humanitarian Diplomacy Strategy, guaranteeing coherence between all actions and encouraging humanitarian awareness to report on all our country’s foreign actions.
