This revised Emergency Appeal includes activities that mitigate tensions and promote positive relations between and within guest and host communities, while conforming with the relevant policies of the Government of Bangladesh and humanitarian actors. Social inclusion initiatives have been integrated into the long-term operational plans of all sectors in order to ensure that both camp and host communities have as equal access as possible to resources and opportunities. Our focus will be to ensure that measures to address, reduce and ultimately end the systematic exclusion of individuals and groups are included within all interventions. In addition, targeted activities to promote social inclusion are highlighted in the Community Engagement and Accountability (CEA) plan.
