Collaboration in the Humanitarian Sector

Project: External partner: HLALearning Project 11th October 2017

The complexity and urgency of humanitarian emergencies demands a multi-stakeholder approach, involving actors at the local, national, regional and international level. A lack of coordination and collaboration during humanitarian preparedness and response can cause duplicated efforts and inefficiencies.

In week 5 of the Learning Series, we discussed some of the key drivers, benefits, blockages and outcomes from humanitarian collaboration. We also presented key learning from collaboration models established both by the Disasters and Emergencies Preparedness Programme and the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, and we unveiled a toolkit designed by the Partnership Brokers Association to help humanitarians collaborate more effectively in a remote working environment.
