What is the Humanitarian Programme Cycle?
The Humanitarian Programme Cycle (HPC) is a coordinated set of actions undertaken by humanitarian actors to improve the predictability, speed and effectiveness of their response to emergencies.
The HPC is based on a six-step process that includes analysis, planning, resource mobilization, implementation, monitoring and evaluation and reporting.
The HPC helps ensure that humanitarian response is needs-based, coordinated and accountable to affected populations. It promotes collaboration among humanitarian actors and facilitates the use of evidence-based data and analysis to inform decision-making.
