“Combining national strengths to enhance international emergency response”
The International Humanitarian Partnership (IHP) is a volountary multinational network between seven governmental emergency management agencies in Europe, active in the field of humanitarian assistance. The agencies are part of, funded by, and supported ty their respective governments. IHP has a strong capacity to support the United Nations, the European Union and other international organisations during emergency situations. Standardised modules, like large base camps housing up to 300 international aid workers, and the informal and flexible network make it possible for IHP to respond quickly to crises and disasters worldwide.
IHP is lead by a chairperson which rotates among the member organisations. From 1 July 2013 to 31 December 2014 the chairmanship is held by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB). Contact details and request procedure for IHP support can be found under Contact.
