Connect. Collaborate. Innovate. DEPP in the Philippines. Thematic Area 2 – Owning our future: Our vision of locally-led responses (Video)

Project: Transforming Surge Capacity 23rd March 2018

What lies beyond DEPP in the Philippines? What are our key takeaways from the last three years of DEPP in the Philippines? What can we do to ensure effective take-off of the shared strategic agenda?

From 21st – 23rd March, over 100 humanitarian actors met for a three-day event to discuss the above questions, and celebrate the DEPP projects’ third year of collaborative impact.  Officially marking the completion of DEPP projects in the Philippines, the event delved into innovative and collaborative strides and gains.

Thematic Area 2 focused on the future of locally led responses and how we can innovate. The Philippines humanitarian action looks bright.  We discussed and redefined surge capacity from a national/local perspective.  We created a shared roster and a mechanism for pooled humanitarian fund.  We discussed, tested and learned how we can all work together more effectively.  We know what we need to do for a better humanitarian response, putting disaster affected people and their institutions at the center.
