This paper examines the experience of the flood relief programme implemented in Bangladesh in 2015. It highlights the need for humanitarian partners to have the capacity to undertake the local-level influencing that is vital to working effectively in humanitarian contexts.

Partnering for Impact series

To do the work it does, Oxfam works closely with partners at all stages of the programme, in all kind of contexts: humanitarian, influencing, development, etc. But what does it mean for our staff? Each day brings new challenges and opportunities, so how do they do it? Following a reflective and productive writeshop, this Partnering for Impact series was developed to share and explore learning from experienced practitioners about what it takes to “work well in partnership”.
