“Combining national strengths to enhance international emergency response”
The International Humanitarian Partnership (IHP) is a voluntary multinational operational network between eight governmental emergency management agencies in Europe, active in the field of humanitarian assistance. The agencies are part of, funded and supported by their respective governments. IHP has a strong capacity to support the United Nations, the European Union and other international organisations during emergency situations. Standardised and prepositioned modules, like large base camps housing up to 300 international aid workers or coordination centers, and a flexible network structure and make it possible for IHP to respond quickly to crises and disasters worldwide.
IHP is led by a chairperson which rotates among the member organisations. From 01 July 2016 to 31 December 2017 the chairmanship is held by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). Contact details and request procedure for IHP support can be found under Contact.
