 The resolutions are available on the websites of the InternationalCommittee of the Red Cross (www.icrc.org),the International Federation(www.ifrc.org) and the Standing Commission (www.rcstandcom.info),inthe sections devoted to the 30th International Conference and 2007Council of Delegates.
 
Itis a pleasure for us to present this booklet containing the resolutions adopted by the 2007Council of Delegates of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and by the30th International Conference of the Red Cross and Red Crescent.The Council of Delegates andthe International Conference achieved impressive results and reaffirmed their willingness towork “together for humanity.The components of the Movement expressed theirdetermination to form partnerships among themselves as well as with States in order to meetthe needs of the most vulnerable people.
The Conference
adopted by consensus six resolutions and a declaration.With the declaration
Together for Humanity 
(Resolution 1),Governments and National Societies acknowledge the threatsposed in humanitarian terms byenvironmental degradation and climate change,internationalmigration,urban violence and emergent and recurrent diseases,and affirm their commitmenttowork closely with each other and with other organizations to address those threats.Resolution 2 complements the work of the Council of Delegates (Resolution 3) and clarifies thespecific role of National Societies as auxiliaries to their public authorities in the humanitarian field.Their specific and distinctive partnership is recognized,entailing the need for National Societiesto remain and be respected as neutral and independent.Itwas of particular importance for the Conference,with the States party to the GenevaConventions represented,to forcefully reaffirm the relevance and adequacy of the basic tenetsof international humanitarian law (IHL) to preserve human life and dignity in armed conflict.Resolution 3 re-emphasizes in particular the fundamental guarantees applicable to protectedpersons,which leave no one bereft of legal protection during armed conflict.It also restates theobligation of all parties to armed conflict to respect and to protect those providing humanitarianand medical assistance,aswell as the essential principles applicable to the conduct of hostilities.The texthighlighted the role to be played by all members in enhancing effectiveimplementation,especially the need to incorporate IHL into domestic law and practice,intodoctrine and procedures guiding the conduct of military operations,and into relevant trainingand educational programmes.Finally,the need to make criminal justice more effective is citedwith a view toending impunity for those responsible for serious violations of IHL.Resolution 4 calls for strengthening of the legal framework for international response to disasters.The adoption of the
Guidelines for the Domestic Facilitation and Regulation of International Disaster Relief and Initial Recovery Assistance
is the result of a broad and lengthy consultation process ledbythe International Federation within the Movement,with States and with many otherorganizations.Based on the conviction that more lives can be saved if law supports – rather thanimpedes – the relief effort,it is hoped that the Guidelines will be taken into account in relatedinitiatives concerning development of the law,disaster management and risk reduction.
