The private sector has clearly expressed its interest in getting actively involved in humanitarian actions in the context of Disaster and Risk Management.
The implementation of Madagascar Private Sector Humanitarian Platform was originally sealed by the declaration of interest of nearly 60 companies from different industries.
Several companies discussed their future commitments, making innovative and concrete proposals. Companies are organized by clusters in accordance with the cluster approach in Madagascar. For each cluster, a cluster lead is appointed by its peers and all cluster leads form the Coordinating Committee. The platform was identified as a pilot project that will be presented at the 2016 World Humanitarian Summit as a best-practice to be duplicated.
