PHT Position Statement 2014 to 2020

The PHT Position Statement 2014 to 2020 has been developed based on findings from the PHT Performance Review 2008 to 2012, completed in February 2013. The review recommended the development of a PHT Position Statement which clearly defines PHT roles and responsibilities, how the PHT provides support to NDMOs and line ministries in preparedness and response and the future direction of the PHT. The PHT Position Statement was drafted by a PHT Strategic Advisory Group (SAG) from June to October 2013. It was further revised and finalized with inputs from NDMOs and PHT partners during consultations at the 6th Annual PHT Workshop held from 21 to 25 October 2013. This Position Statement confirms our common understanding of the PHT and how humanitarian partners can best work together in support of nationally led responses. As the PHT is collectively owned by NDMOs and PHT partners, this Position Statement is also collectively owned and developed by NDMOs and PHT partners. Through the process of developing this document we aim to achieve a common definition of our vision, mission, values and goals to guide our collective efforts in delivering more effective, timely and coordinated humanitarian action.
