Click on the interactive icon or button below to navigate through the different phases of the Humanitarian Programme Cycle to find associated guidance, tools, templates, resources, and country examples for effective cluster coordination and information management.

The humanitarian programme cycle (HPC) is a coordinated series of actions undertaken to help prepare for, manage and deliver humanitarian response. It consists of five elements coordinated in a seamless manner, with one step logically building on the previous and leading to the next. Successful implementation of the humanitarian programme cycle is dependent on effective emergency preparedness, effective coordination with national/local authorities and humanitarian actors, information management, and accountability to affected populations.
