HIGHLIGHTS OF 2021
To bring sustainable changes for people living in poverty and exclusion, AAB is committed to its partners based on values, aspiration for desired outcomes, shared responsibilities, reciprocal obligations, and mutual accountability.
In 2021, our achievements, therefore, are being presented from the lens of a diverse range of partnerships, ranging from communities, implementing partners, development partners, private sector actors, civil society, and think-tanks.
We have found partnerships for social movement, particularly with people-led organisations, to be extremely successful. Mobilising communities, particularly for promoting grassroots leadership, and claiming collective rights was possible because of such partnership. Media partnership was instrumental both for raising awareness and engaging the political actors, including legislators.
In the programmatic interventions of ActionAid for disaster management and risk governance, partnership with private sector actors, considering their relevance in disaster risk management and contribution to the national economic growth of Bangladesh, has strengthened with results and was highly appreciated by different ministries and departments of the Government of Bangladesh, including the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief, and Social Welfare Department.
In the area of humanitarian response, our emphasis on partnership with the affected community and local organisations, to facilitate disaster preparedness and emergency response during crisis, modelled on Women and Young People-Led approach, proved effective. The strategic partnership we developed to address gender-based violence, aimed to enhance the capacity of the frontline humanitarian local actors.
We also maintained multiple federation wise partnerships, for instance, our Local Rights Programmes (LRPs) were supported by four funding affiliates – AA Greece, AA Italy, AA UK and AA Sweden.
Altogether, through different partnerships with multilevel stakeholders, engagement and ownership of all relevant actors and duty bearers have been ensured in recognising and addressing the ground needs of people with the aim to build a just world for all.
