HAP International

Welthungerhilfe now full member of HAP International

(12.07.2012) HAP-Members are committed to meeting the highest standards of accountability and quality management with the aim of improving the accountability of humanitarian action to people affected by disasters and other crises.

 

What does HAP stand for?

While aid organisations exercise significant power in their emergency activities, in contrast, crisis-affected people have no formal control, and often little influence, over these organisations. As a result, it is difficult for affected people to hold organisations to account for actions taken on their behalf. HAP standards help to meet those people’s needs, and reduce the possibility of mistakes, abuse and corruption.

HAP-Members are committed to meeting the highest standards of accountability and quality management with the aim of improving the accountability of humanitarian action to people affected by disasters and other crises.

The HAP standards refer to the following benchmarks

• Establishing and delivering on commitments;
• Staff competency;
• Sharing information;
• Participation;
• Handling complaints; and
• Learning and continual improvement.

Welthungerhilfe shares the mission of making humanitarian action accountable to its intended beneficiaries through self-regulation linked by common respect for the rights and dignity of beneficiaries.
