Japan Platform (JPF) is an international emergency humanitarian aid organization which offers more effective and prompter emergency aid, in response to the world situation, focusing the issues of refugees and natural disaster. JPF conducts such aid with a tripartite cooperation system where NGOs, business community, and government of Japan work in close cooperation, based on equal partnership, making the most of the respective sectors’ characteristics and resources.
The revenue source of this “PLATFORM-foundation” is composed of public and private funding: government fund-raising as well as donations from business community and citizens. Therefore, NGOs are able to get expenditures for initial response to implement emergency aid, immediately and directly, from the foundation, and go to the site promptly to start the aid activities timely.
As for business community, “Nippon Keidanren -Japan Business Federation” has initiated to support JPF. This support will be expected to actualize the respective member companies’ participatory contribution through offering their technology, equipment, staff, and information. Also, in order to enhance the transparency and accountability of JPF, we invite media, private foundations, and academic society for their participation and cooperation. We aim to build a system to cope with international emergency aid together with all the parties concerned. That, we believe, is our challenge to facilitate the development of Japanese civil society in the 21st century.
The Objectives of Japan Platform shall be as follows:
To improve the quality of humanitarian aid conducted by Japanese NGOs through gathering and utilizing the respective personnel, financial resources and the experiences of Japanese NGO member organizations, governmental agencies, business community, the media, and institutes.
To actively implement aid activities in natural disaster-stricken areas both at home and abroad, as well as in conflict areas and developing countries
As a member of the international community, and through the activities mentioned above, the Organization shall aim to contribute to build a more peaceful world and expect to contribute the development of the civil society in Japan.See more
