Pollisree is a local Non-Governmental organization was established in February 1987. Organization mainly working for the distressed poor, and the landless masses. The government of Bangladesh expects that the country will be freed from hunger by 2030, if the productivity can be further increased. But it has to been ensured that an increased productivity goes along with an improved access to nutritious food for all people. In keeping with the motto ‘Leave no one behind’ (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs), the central challenges are to include people who have been so far excluded from development initiatives. This includes making the existing social safety net more functional, governmental services more accessible, strengthening the resilience of the of the most disadvantaged people and adequately recognising the rights of the indigenous and landless population, e.g. in regard to the use of land and natural resources. more

The project is intended to empower indigenous Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Local Authorities (LAs) and communities to promote most vulnerable peoples' social development through access to Social Safety Net Programs (SSNPs). Local government department has their set up at union, Upazila, district and central level. However Disaster& relief department, Social welfare, Women Affair and other relevant department don’t have their setup at union but they work through the local government body (Union Council) in the rural area. So the accountability of those organizations and scope of participation of the vulnerable peoples' are very much important for social safety net programs. Pollisree is a local organization and have permanent existence in the working area beyond the project. For that reason, we have strong connectivity with local authorities which help the project to build linkage between the target group and duty bearers. Pollisree has strong relation with the union and different government offices. Apart from that we have very good relation with the local government bodies and local media. The acceptance of the organization to the local people, government official, local government, civil society and other stakeholders is very high and that is why we are the perfect organization to implement such kind of rights based project. The staff are getting advantage of the relationship in implementing the project activities.more

This Project significantly contributes to the achievement of priority area of this CSOs in their efforts to strengthen democratic governance, to promote transparency and accountability of decision-making, policy implementation and delivery of justice as well as the empowerment of the stakeholders concerned. The action pays particular attention to the inclusions and the rights of the most vulnerable groups. With its comprehensive approach combining awareness raising, capacity building, facilitation of democratic dialogue, research and advocacy measures, the action is designed to enhance CSOs’ active role in democratic governance and accountability processes with public authorities. More specifically, the target group will increase its capacity, operational competencies, space and readiness to act as monitors, advocates and partners in policy dialogue and to provide information and expertise to foster transparency and participation. Specific focus is given to enhance the inclusion of vulnerable groups in CSOs as well as in governance and accountability processes with LAs. The action puts emphasis on effective partnership and creative forms of democratic dialogue between CSOs and public authorities. To achieve these objectives, it interlinks CSOs on local, regional and national level for advocacy on improving the quality and effectiveness of public policies and fair management of public resources. The cooperation with the Bangladesh Forum Germany (see associates) backs these efforts from international level. The empowerment of all stakeholders concerned, in particular members of vulnerable groups as civil society (CS) actors, as well as CSOs and public authorities from local to national level, is at the centre of the action’s design. At local and regional level, it concentrates on conflict-prone regions with high rates of discrimination against vulnerable groups and malfunctioning cooperation mechanisms between CSOs and LAs. The Pollisree focus on effective inclusion of marginalised groups in CSOs, notably ultra-poor women and people belonging to religious and indigenous minorities, for participatory decisionmaking and joint actions. Based on the concrete experiences on local and regional level, the co-applicants contribute in cooperation with the national CSO platform on democratic dialogue and the applicant NETZ to reformation of discriminatory policies and laws. In particular they advocate for improved application of the insufficiently executed Right to Information (RTI) Act. The RTI Act is utilised to strengthen democratic governance by making LAs and other authorities accountable, to prevent corruption and to secure land entitlements for vulnerable groups. more
