Experts and stakeholders Wednesday said there must be a collective plan to cope with the slashing of aid for Rohingyas.



 Experts and stakeholders Wednesday said there must be a collective plan to cope with the slashing of aid for Rohingyas.

They made the call at a webinar organised by Cox's Bazar Civil Society and NGO Forum, a network of 60 local organisations.

KM Tariqul Islam, director general NGO Affairs Bureau, said aid for Rohingya response is being slashed due to the global crisis. "So, the government and donors should find realistic ways to attract global donors."

Shireen Huq, a member of Naripokkho, urged the government to announce a plan and redouble its global efforts on Rohingya repatriation.  

Shireen and Disaster Forum Member Secretary Nayeem Gowhar Warha also called on the government to consider signing the Geneva Convention on Refugees.

Ashis Damle of Oxfam requested the international non-governmental organisations to initiate a global campaign to facilitate the early repatriation of the displaced Myanmar citizens.
