 National Alliance of Humanitarian Actors
Speakers at a sharing conference yesterday called for shifting the power (localising humanitarian response system) as it would ensure better humanitarian response during any emergency or disaster scenario. Local actors should be empowered so that they can effectively take part in humanitarian actions. It must be understood that, it is not shifting the power, rather shifting or taking the responsibility. Shifting the power means sharing the capacity and equitable existence of power, they said. They made the remarks while addressing the conference titled "National Lessons Learning and Sharing" of Shifting the Power Project at Spectra Convention Centre at Gulshan in the city.

 Mohammad Reaz Ahmed, DG , Department of Disaster Management under the Ministry of Disaster Management and Relief, attended as the Chief Guest.

Sakeb Nabi, Country Director of ChriastainAid, Shafiqul Islam, Country Director of ADD International, EhsanKur Rahman, Executive Director of Dhaka Ahsania Mission, Farah Kabir, Country Director of ActionAid, among others, spoke at two sessions of the programme. Terming local actors as the first and main responders after a disaster strikes, the speakers said they know the context and language, and are able to negotiate access. The project has already created a platform named 'National Alliance of Humanitarian Actors (NAHAB)' and it is being supported by 44 Local/National NGOs so far over the last one year. Shifting the Power (StP) stands up for a change in mindset and business models in the humanitarian system as a whole at the governmental, national, local and international NGO level. Shifting the Power, a global initiative of six international NGOs (ActionAid, CAFOD, Christian Aid, Oxfam, Tearfund and Concern Worldwide), led by Christian Aid in Bangladesh and supported by DFID through START Network, started its journey in Bangladesh in 2015.
