The report details identified challenges and recommends actions to strengthen national and international humanitarian system partnerships, both in the Philippines, and more broadly during future humanitarian responses.The project is part of an ongoing effort to build the future of humanitarian assistance.
The research process involved: in-country research; focus group discussions and key interviews with UN agencies, INGOs, NGOs, government representatives, donor agencies and community members; and a review of relevant documentation.
