PHT Performance Review 2008- 2012

This review examines PHT performance over a five-year period, from 2008 to 2012. The objectives are to document a background of the PHT, to assess if the PHT is meeting its objectives (accountability, leadership, coordination and partnerships), to identify recommendations to strengthen the PHT and to contribute to stakeholder knowledge of the humanitarian coordination mechanisms in place in the Pacific. PHT performance is assessed based on PHT stakeholder feedback gathered in interviews and an online survey. The review also considers relevant stakeholder reports and documents, as well as researcher observations at regional and national workshops and meetings. Key areas assessed include accountability and leadership, crosscutting issues, effectiveness and timeliness of emergency response, information management, inter-cluster coordination, monitoring and evaluation, national engagement, partnerships and training needs. Respondents included individuals from Pacific Island Governments, UN agencies, NGOs, International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) and national societies, donors, and international and regional organizations
