Putting Oxfam's Partnership Principles into Practice
Oxfam works with others, taking action to achieve common goals for overcoming poverty and injustice. Its aim is to achieve consistently good quality and honest relationships with all of its partners. Good partnerships are based on paying attention to ways of working and maximizing impact by delivering good financial and programme management.
This guideline has been developed to help Oxfam's programme staff put its Partnership Principles into practice. It contains procedures to ensure that Oxfam is setting up the best partnerships possible ' and contains refinements to procedures already in use. A key focus is Oxfam's and its partners' shared responsibility for accountability to primary and key stakeholders, and is prompted by recent feedback and learning offered by staff and partners.
