The IHIP initiative is mainly driven by operational challenges to improve how humanitarian actors engage with the private sector to deliver infrastructure projects. Its specific function is to build on existing private sector tools and adapt them to the humanitarian context and therefore allowing successful design and delivery of infrastructure. IHIP addresses this issue building on common references ( forms of contract for construction), which are already widely known and accepted by the private sector, the development and humanitarian actors.
