About the AHP


The Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) is a five-year (2017-2022) partnership between the Australian Government and Australian NGOs. Through the AHP, partners aim to save lives, alleviate suffering and enhance human dignity in the face of conflict, disasters and other humanitarian crises.

The AHP meets these objectives by focusing efforts both in disaster response as well as disaster preparedness.

In disaster response, the AHP uses Australian Government resources to leverage NGO networks and expertise, to deliver effective humanitarian assistance.  For each response, the partnership selects the best placed NGOs to respond to those in need, in the most timely, cost efficient and effective way.  In disaster preparedness, the AHP delivers the AUD 50 million Disaster READY initiative across the Pacific and Timor-Leste.
