To fulfil our mission, we will focus on the following strategic priorities.

1. We will put basics of coordination and collaboration in place in all our operations.
We will consistently put in place principled and effective coordination, collaboration and analysis to meet cluster responsibilities and to contribute to timely and informed decisions by Humanitarian Coordinators (HCs) and Humanitarian Country Teams (HCTs).

2. We will ensure voices of crisis affected persons and communities are heard, especially the forgotten ones.
We will amplify the voices of persons affected by humanitarian crises and ensure consistent and predictable representation of their issues, so they can be addressed by relevant responsible parties.

We will promote protection as a core element of humanitarian work addressing protection problems and creating conditions conducive for durable solutions that are recognized as essential in development and peacebuilding efforts.
