Example text

What are ‘additional interests’? The HAP Standard requires that agencies seeking Certification declare ‘additional affiliations, interests, values, and policies where these may have a direct bearing upon the well-being of disaster survivors, intended beneficiaries, and other specified stakeholders’. The word ‘additional’ means commitments that go beyond the substance and scope of the HAP Principles of Accountability and the HAP Principles for Humanitarian Action. Because on its own this is a very open-ended requirement, the conditional phrase ‘having a direct bearing upon’ needs to be emphasised.

The guidance given to HAP’s auditors is to approach the question of exoneration with an open mind, recognising that humanitarian work will often present agencies with difficult choices and occasional moral dilemmas, in situations where information is scarce and often unreliable. The Principles for Humanitarian Action provoked more debate than any other element of the HAP Standard during the drafting process. In recognition of this, HAP is committed to further learning from evidence and common sense, and will not promote a dogmatic interpretation of the Principles for Humanitarian Action in the Certification scheme.

These Principles for Humanitarian Action provide a common practical definition of humanitarianism for agencies seeking to achieve compliance with the HAP Standard. More importantly, they offer a framework that can help to guide and adapt humanitarian action in a consistent and accountable way to the realities of challenging operational environments and when working with humanitarian partners. This section of the Guide examines three elements of the Humanitarian Accountability Covenant: • The HAP Principles for Humanitarian Action • Declaration of additional interests • Working with humanitarian partners.
