Over the last 20 years IHP has established a variety of partnerships with other organisations. Partnerships are a key component for the delivery of emergency support services. 

IHP Partners

United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affiars (OCHA) - OCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. OCHA also ensures there is a framework within which each actor can contribute to the overall response effort. IHP and OCHA has collaborated since the inception of OCHA in the 90's and the IHP Secretariat is provided by OCHA Geneva.  


United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) - The World Food Programme (WFP) is the United Nations frontline agency mandated to combat global hunger, which afflicts one out of every seven people on earth.


United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) - The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees.


European Union (EU) - Its European Community Humanitarian Office (ECHO) was created in 1992 as an expression of the European solidarity with people in need all around the world. In 2004 it became the Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid before integrating Civil Protection in 2010 for a better coordination and disaster response inside and outside Europe.
