Humanitarian Advisory Group is an Australian-based social enterprise founded in 2012 to elevate the profile of humanitarian action in Asia and the Pacific. We provide a unique space for thinking, research, technical advice, evaluations and training that can positively contribute to excellence in humanitarian practice.
Currently, several countries have operational coalitions or mechanisms for joint appeals for humanitarian response. The majority of these come under a global umbrella organisation, the Emergency Appeals Alliance. Some mechanisms have been operational for over 50 years, whilst others have only been recently established. In recent years, several other countries including Australia, have examined the possibility of establishing joint appeal mechanisms for humanitarian response.
Over the period 2011 – 2017, the Humanitarian Partnership Agreement (HPA) has been the Australian Government’s primary mechanism for providing humanitarian and emergency response funding to Australian NGOs. The HPA brings together DFAT and six Australian NGOs (CARE, Caritas, Oxfam, Plan International, Save the Children and World Vision).
We provide research, technical advice, evaluation and training services for government, non-government organisations, UN agencies and the private sector that positively contributes to excellence in humanitarian practice.
We are proud to work with outstanding and committed people engaging in humanitarian action and disaster response. We work with large and small organisations, government aid programs, NGOs and United Nations agencies.
