Over the years humanitarian codes and standards have emphasised the importance of working together but progress in putting principles into practice has been laboured.
With its focus on national actors, this study returns to the vexed question of humanitarian partnership and seeks to provide evidence, in real time, of how far partnership working happened in the response to Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) in the Philippines. The research builds on the findings from the publication ‘Missed Opportunities: the case for strengthening national and local partnership-based humanitarian responses’.
