AAP Fact Sheet Committment 7: Working with partners and other stakeholders
When working with (or funding) partners for the delivery of services to affected communities, an agency’s commitments on AAP cannot end at the partner’s door. Rather, the chain of accountability to affected populations ideally travels from the funding source to the end recipient.
This requires agencies to discuss and negotiate with their partners on how commitments to AAP will be met. FAO’s Strategy on Partnerships with Civil Society acknowledges several important principles for civil society organisations (CSOs) that are consistent with an accountable approach to partnerships: autonomy, self-organization, and independence; a commitment to equity and empowerment of its stakeholders; knowledge and expertise; transparency and accountability, and; consensus-orientation and representativeness.
In humanitarian responses, FAO is committed to coordinating and collaborating with other key actors such as host governments and local authorities, civil society and donors. FAO is in a unique position to work closely with government partners to encourage, advocate and build capacity to embed AAP at a national level.
