This document introduces concrete steps that can be followed and implemented in line with the key phases of the humanitarian programme management cycle:

  • Monitoring
  • Preparedness.

Each phase is presented as an individual chapter, with a final chapter focused on coordination in relation to MBP. Coordination applies to all phases of the cycle.
