MINCODE joined 12 organizations during the Humanitarian Partnership Platform (HPP) Workshop and Meeting held last October 17-21, 2022 in Quezon City. At the end of the meeting, a 1Mindanao HPP was formed.
The HPP aims to serve as a platform for the complementation of strategies, best practices, and capacities of its members. MINCODE is one of the 16 member organizations of the HPP. Care Philippines is the Convenor and Secretariat of the HPP.
The HPP Workshop and Meeting was held as the first capacity development activity for the HPP members for the year 2022. The activity included an After Action Review for organizations which responded during Typhoon Odette, reviewed HPP progress and organizational documents, and updated the HPP Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP). The capacities of HPP members were also honed on Safety and Security for humanitarian responders, Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL), Proposal Development, and Gender Mainstreaming and Gender in Emergencies.
During the organizational meeting of the HPP, members identified the lead organizations for each of the 17 regions of the Philippines. For Mindanao, the member organizations agreed to have an informal grouping called 1Mindanao HPP and identified the Lead, Alternate, and Members for each of the Mindanao regions. The Lead Organization will be responsible for convening the HPP members in the region in case of humanitarian emergencies and shall be the focal partner of Care in orchestrating humanitarian response and rehabilitation interventions. The HPP intends to foster partnerships and streamline coordination among stakeholders during humanitarian emergencies. This complements MINCODE’s initiative on establishing the Regional CSO DRRM Coordination Hubs.
The matrix below shows the HPP Lead, Alternate Lead, and Members in each of the Mindanao regions:
