Aarathi Krishan, Collaborator - Inclusive + Equitable Futures

Aarathi Krishnan specialises in humanitarian futures and strategic foresight, and is the Global Futures and Foresight Coordinator with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC), as well as a Futures Fellow with IARAN. She has a background in development program management and policy, and spent a lot of her early development career working across Africa and Asia.

Her work focuses on reimagining futures for the humanitarian system and on strategic organisational transformation for humanitarian organisations. She is currently co-leading the Global Strategy 2030 for the Red Cross and Red Crescent, a futures focused strategy aimed at transforming the Red Cross and Red Crescent network.

She is particularly interested in the intersections of new forms of power, values and new humanitarianisms. Her practice covers both strategic foresight, organisational change, training, research, horizon scanning and experiential futures, with a specific lens on decolonised and feminist futures.
