Private Sector Humanitarian Platform Madagascar

The Private Sector Humanitarian platform has been put in place in order to enhance the efficiency of the humanitarian preparedness and response to emergency situation all over the country, by involving the private sector upstream and not only asking them for money at the last minute. The idea is to optimize the use of existing services, equipment, financial, technical and human resources from the private sector, locally present all over the country: Before sending international help equipment, use first what is available locally through the different companies.  Everybody has to win from that: People who will be rescued earlier, Humanitarian actors who will be able to decide more efficiently what is needed and where; companies, by the promotion of their corporate social responsibility; and the Humanitarian sector in general by being more efficient.
