Humanitarian Accountability Partnership (HAP)

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

Humanitarian Accountability Partnership (HAP) is an inter-agency initiative that aims to strengthen accountability towards those affected by crisis situations and to facilitate improved performance within the humanitarian sector. At the heart of this endeavor lies HAP’s Principles of Accountability. The members of HAP seek to comply with and promote these principles through capacity-building, self-regulation, quality assurance certification and advocacy.

The HAP Standard in Accountability and Quality Management represents a broad consensus of what matters most in humanitarian action. The 2010 edition is the result of an extensive review process that involved wide consultation with different stakeholders.
