Introduction

ActionAid Bangladesh (AAB) is committed to stand by people living in poverty and help them get rid of poverty and injustice. The Country Strategy Paper IV of AAB sheds light on the organisation in terms of understanding the reasons of poverty and exclusion and the ways of addressing it. Since partnership plays the most important role in defining the impact of AAB, it is important to clearly state, the meaning of partnership‟ for AAB and how it intends to practice what it preaches. It is also important to state how AAB intends to work or not work with organisations that foster poverty and deepen inequality. Partnership is an overarching and necessary strategy that cuts across geographies and different levels from local to international, projects and programmes. Our partnership policy has been developed to support and enhance the quality of relationships, and to ensure mutual accountability to our partners and vice versa.

Our past experiences have unfolded a need for qualitative change in the meaning of Partnership. AAB therefore considers that its partnership with communities and grassroots organisations, particularly with poor and excluded people, that will contribute to that Change. AAB believes that no single actor can ensure rights. This necessitates the need for multi-dimensional partnerships with key players such as government, civil society, people's movements, alliances, networks, forums, NGOs, donors and the media in carrying forward and strengthening policy advocacy work. Partnership Policy (PP) is essentially a language of communication among the entities that constitute partnership. The PP aims to strengthen the bond among partners. It is also a continuous process of negotiation to come to a common ground for intervention in the social world in order to change it.

International Conference on the Rohingya Refugee Crisis: Towards Sustainable Solutions

The current Rohingya population taking refuge in Bangladesh amounts to over 1 million, with the majority comprising women and children. They are one of the most vulnerable groups of people deprived of basic human rights in the world today. Subjected to violence and conflict, and unrecognized as citizens of Myanmar, they first began their exodus across the border into Bangladesh in the 70s, then in the 90s and most recently over the past three years. Before August 2017, there were about 300,000 Rohingyas residing in camps in Cox’s Bazar in southern Bangladesh.

Rohingya Crisis: Children are Smiling Again

About 65 million people in the world today are refugees or forcibly displaced according to UNHCR. The reality is grave for a person seeking refuge in another country, who do not have any guarantee of coming back to their own land, which they use to call home once. Kutupalong in Bangladesh is the largest refugee camp in the world right now, sheltering over 800,000 displaced citizens of Myanmar, the majority of which are minors. There were still inadequate facilitates to provide shelter and required lifesaving items to thousands of incoming Rohingya refugees. Children were roaming around everywhere in the makeshift camps, without a clue of what to do.
