Accountability of Private Humanitarian Aid for Sheltering in Leyte after Typhoon Haiyan

This study sought to address the following primary research question: Is private humanitarian aid for disaster response and reconstruction accountable in Leyte after Haiyan? Specifically, this research aimed to answer the following secondary questions: What are significant global governance institutions in private humanitarian aid? What direct mechanisms for accountability are now in place? What are the historical conjunctures that led to the development of these mechanisms? What are the common themes and discourses that these mechanisms are able to cover? How do global governance institutions comply with these mechanisms? How do these direct mechanisms interact and co-exist with indirect mechanisms for accountability (LGUs, corporations, media, other civil society actors)? What are the best practices, gaps and unnecessary overlaps pertaining to the interaction of direct and indirect accountability mechanisms?
