Platforms for private sector: humanitarian collaboration

Source(s):  King's College London

This scoping study explores how ‘platforms’--in the form of intermediary organisations, networks, alliances and temporary coalitions--support the private sector’s engagement in humanitarian action, from disaster risk reduction (DRR) and preparedness through response, reconstruction and development. The research, conducted by the Humanitarian Futures Programme at King's College London, identifies new ways for the private sector to play a more effective role in preventing humanitarian disasters. In particular, how there is much that can be gleaned from the work of platforms about how ‘traditional’ actors (e.g. UN agencies, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, donor governments and international non-governmental organisations) and ‘nontraditional’ humanitarian actors (e.g. the private sector, military, diaspora and non-western donors) can more broadly work together.
