Cox's Bazar Civil Society Organization and NGO Forum (CCNF), a network of 50 local and national bodies, who are working for Rohingyas on Sunday expressed support to UN effort to raise fund in Rohingya response.
The UN will have fund raising conference in New York on 24th September but CCNF simultaneously demanded transparency and localization of the response.
It should be noted that for 2019 Joint Response Plan (JRP) the demand was $ 920 million but in about nine months only 38 % have been achieved.
The UN agencies are trying again to raise the rest of the fund through this conference and the government of Bangladesh is supporting the initiative.
In the press statement CCNF also said there had been long-standing demand for localization and transparency of aid since the Rohingya influx started during August 2017.
