In mid-February, PHAP launched its new online community for members of the association, the PHAP Member Exchange. The purpose of the community is to facilitate the provision of timely, practical information and resources in response to questions that arise in members’ day-to-day work, drawing on the tremendous amount of experience among the PHAP membership. In the two weeks since the launch, members have been sharing advice on questions of practical concern, including professional development, psychosocial support programming, the practical benefits of joining NGO consortia, and standards and principles.
This month, we would like to highlight the following threads (note that PHAP membership is required to access the community):
- How to frame reporting on violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law (question from Rey Olivier Alejandrino, response from Théo Boutruche)
- Data and informed decision-making in humanitarian contexts (question from Ximena Contla, response from Mary Mendes)
- Child protection through behavioral change communication (question from Reine Van Holsbeek, response from Cinzia Verzeletti)
- Is it worth it for us as a local NGO to pursue membership in an NGO consortium? (question from Ndume Eliya, responses from Marco Rotelli and Billiamin Abiodun Seriki)
- Unpacking the concepts of humanitarian protection and assistance (question from Bikubusyo Alimasi Symphorien, responses from Stean Tshiband, Ndume Eliya, Emmanuel Senjo Yange, and Aziz Hassan)
- Demystifying the term "localization" (question from Asim Jaleel, responses from Mukesh Kapila and Upendra Baghel)
If you are facing any issues in your work that other members could help with, please do not hesitate to ask a question in the community.
