- The HCT is an inclusive forum for strategic, high level dialogue where all members feel that they can raise concerns and that their concerns are respected and heard by other members.
- HCT member and their constituencies are clear on and understand the decisions made by the HCT.
- The Strategic Response Plan is defined by the HCT and used as a tool for planning and implementation by the humanitarian community.
- Accountability to affected populations is a regular discussion topic.
