Philippines: Community of Practice (CoP) on Community Engagement Preparedness and Response Mapping (8 February 2017)

As part of post typhoon Haiyan preparedness initiatives in 2014, a national level Community of Practice (CoP) on Community Engagement was created. The CoP provides strategic direction and technical support to any field level working group on community engagement in an event of a major emergency. Support includes improving two-way communication platforms, feedback avenues, accountability pathways, closing-the-communication-loop mechanisms, and common service partnerships and innovations in the use of various technologies for communicating with the affected communities. The CoP also provides recommendations, updates and relevant reports to the Humanitarian Country Team, as required.
