Title: The Border Consortium (TBC) Annual Report, January-December 2015
Date of publication: March 2016
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "This report covers January to December 2015 and thus becomes the first annual report on the TBC Programme. It outlines progress towards achieving the outcomes, which are delineated in the TBC log frame and based on its Strategic Directions for Thailand and Burma/ Myanmar 2013-2017. The total reach of TBC’s programmes in 2015 included approximately 211,000 men, women, and children - 103,00 in nine refugee camps in Thailand, and 108,000 in 24 townships in SE Burma/Myanmar. In Burma/Myanmar during 2015, two major events took place - the signing of the National Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) in October and the national elections in November. The NCA was widely welcomed as an important step towards ending decades of civil war despite the fact that not all groups were included in the agreement. The election process was largely free of violence and intimidation even though approximately one million people were denied the right to vote. Ultimately, the NLD won a landslide victory with 79% of the elected seats across both houses of parliament. In SE Burma/Myanmar, instances of new displacement remained sporadic but widespread. Preparations to launch the Asia Highway officially highlighted the lack of agreement about taxation revenue in contested areas and led to armed conflict in some cases. It is not envisioned that State and Regional Chief Ministers will be appointed until April 2016, which could affect the process of IDP and refugee return. In Thailand, military rule continued under the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) and elections were postponed until 2017. Refugee policy of encampment continued to be enforced, but the government’s focus was mainly on migration and irregular movement in border areas. Due to delays caused by elections in Burma/Myanmar, the dialogue between the two countries on refugee return did not progress. While the RTG continues their commitment to voluntary return, there is an expectation on UNHCR and CCSDPT agencies in the camps to have a plan ready for when people may choose to return. There is still a steady flow of migrants from Burma/ Myanmar, but the Thai authorities launched a sweeping campaign against the people-smugglers and traffickers. This crackdown has not completely closed down the operations. Hundreds of people remain in detention centres and shelters in Thailand..... TBC’s Strategic Directions: Readiness, Economic and Social Development, Humanitarian Support, Participation and Governance, and Organisational Development are integrated over all programmes to ensure that results are achieved for the refugee and conflict-affected communities. In Thailand in 2015, TBC moved, as much as possible, from a participation to an empowerment model to ensure that the refugees not only have the skills necessary to relocate across the border but also the practical experience in decision-making, management, land use planning, sustainable agriculture, and small business development. A number of lessons have been learned in the various Programmes throughout the year. The overarching lesson is clear: Refugees are prepared, willing, and capable of leading the process of managing their day- to-day lives whilst TBC can now take on the role of mentor/coach. They now actively seeking information on potential areas of future return and engaging with local authorities and host communities to inform community-led planning processes..... Looking forward to 2016, TBC anticipates small group returns will commence and TBC stands ready to respond to their needs in coordination with UNHCR and other agencies.TBC will further increase both the organisation’s and the refugee’s readiness for repatriation and will continue activities and programmes that support the achievement of the Strategic Directions. TBC is committed to maintaining the current food ration and therefore will take on some new initiatives to enhance innovation and cost efficiencies informed by the lessons learned. In terms of finance, ninety percent of TBC’s income comes from government-backed grants. The actual expenses for the full year 2015 totalled THB 793 M. This is compared to a budget of THB 834 M; it reflects various downsizing/cost cutting measures (including partial ration cuts to rice and charcoal) that have been implemented by TBC during the course of the year. In addition commodity prices for all food supplied was less than expected in the operating budget. Staff headcount at the end of the year was 102 versus 113 at the start, again reflecting downsizing initiatives. TBC’s operating budget for 2016 is THB 755 M (USD 21 M)..."

Title: TBBC Programme Report, July-December 2009
Date of publication: March 2010
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "With funding becoming increasingly difficult to sustain, 2009 never promised to be an easy year for the Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC) or for the hundreds of thousands of refugees and internally displaced people either side of the Thailand Burma border. Humanitarian actors were increasingly becoming operational inside the country to seize whatever new opportunities might emerge after the 2010 General Election and there was a danger that ethnic conflict in the border areas, remote from Rangoon, might increasingly become the ‘side-show’. But the ethnic issue is unfinished business. Armed ethnic conflict has dragged on for more than 60 years and, although both cease-fire and non-ceasefire ethnic groups have limited resources, they remain major obstacles to the State Peace and Development Council’s (SPDC) aim for complete control. Whilst everyone hopes that the General Election will indeed lead to meaningful change, the new constitution does not address ethnic aspirations and conflict could go on for many more years to come. There remains the possibility of a major emergency should SPDC decide to push for an early military solution. Against this backdrop of uncertainty, 2009 in fact turned out in many ways to be a good year for TBBC. Donor interest remained high: twelve governments were represented at TBBC’s annual meetings in Chiang Mai and funding needs were met. TBBC was able to sustain all of its regular activities, supplying 22,130 MT of rice, 5,454 MT of other food and 12,894 MT of charcoal to an average 138,000 refugees, but also was able to invest time and resources in strengthening its programme and planning new initiatives whilst playing a leading role in putting forward strategic options for change to the Royal Thai Government (RTG). TBBC is grateful to all of its Donors, large and small for the support and encouragement it received. This report provides details of the programme during the second half of 2009, and presents an operating budget of baht 1,230 million (USD 37 million or EUR 27 million) for 20101. Whilst primarily targeted at Donors, this report also aims to provide information and analysis useful to other concerned observers and practitioners interested and involved in the situation in Burma and along the Thailand Burma border... Refugee situation: TBBC’s 2009 annual report on displacement in eastern Burma showed how threats to civilian safety and livelihoods have grown even worse during the past five years as the Burmese army has gradually increased its presence and control in the border areas. At least 75,000 people were displaced from their homes between August 2008 and July 2009 and although many of these remain inside Burma, others joined the steady flow of new refugees into Thailand. The attack by the Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA) and SPDC against the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) opposite Tha Song Yang District in June reported last time, was seen as a likely prelude to an ongoing offensive in Karen State. It also illustrated the way similar emergencies might develop on other parts of the border if other cease-fire groups acceded to SPDC’s orders to form border guard forces (BGFs) and joined offensives against the remaining non-ceasefire groups. Some 4,000 refugees fled into Thailand. But so far there have been no major new military operations along the border and, although several deadlines have passed, the other main cease-fire groups have still refused to form BGFs. It remains to be seen whether SPDC will attempt to force the issue before the General Election, which could still precipitate a major emergency, or whether it will back away from direct confrontation, settling instead to break down ethnic resistance over the longer run. Either way, it is far more likely that there will be more refugees coming into Thailand in 2010 than any of them going home. As this report is being finalised there is much speculation about the 3,000 refugees still living in very temporary shelters in Tha Song Yang District following the June offensive. Whilst most of them express a desire to go back, the threat of landmines and ongoing conflict make this a very dangerous proposition at the present time. The Thai authorities insist that they will not send anyone back against their will, but reports of intimidation persist. Since services are difficult to sustain in the temporary locations, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Committee for Coordination of Services to Displaced Persons in Thailand (CCSDPT) have recommended that the refugees should be offered the option of moving to Mae La camp. TBBC’s new population database and ration book system which has gradually been introduced since 2007 is now fully functional, providing accurate information on refugee numbers and tight control of ration distributions. TBBC has been able to physically verify and photograph everyone eligible for assistance and the requirement for every individual to personally collect his/her ration against a photo ID has led to greatly improved efficiencies. Apart from an estimated 7,600 in Mae La, all unregistered people in the camps have now been through the verification process and the verified caseload at 31st December was 139,366 comprising 94,298 registered refugees and 45,038 unregistered people. Since some people work for short periods outside the camps, on average about 96% of the verified caseload actually show up to collect their rations, meaning that the current actual feeding figure is about 133,500. Results of the Royal RTG pilot pre-screening process in four camps have yet to be finalised and no announcement has yet been made whether, how or when this will be extended to the other camps. Hopefully this will occur during the first half of 2010 and, if successful, would mean that TBBC could then exclude “screened out” persons from ration distributions. TBBC’s verification process has in fact already excluded some who have been pre-screened. Almost 17,000 refugees left for resettlement to third countries in 2009 bringing the total to over 53,000 since 2005. Numbers leaving are expected to start declining in 2010 and so, allowing for babies born in the camps and a ‘normal’ influx of new arrivals, TBBC is basing its budget for 2010 on an end of year case load of 136,000... Funding situation: 2009 was a satisfactory year financially. Expenses totalled baht 1,108 million and income was baht 1,137 million giving a small surplus of baht 29 million. This small reserve will be important in 2010 since the budget of baht 1,230 million, is 11% higher than last year, mainly due to higher commodity prices, but also because of planned new initiatives. Although some Donors have yet to confirm their funding intentions, the projected income for 2010 is baht 1,083 million, 5% lower than 2009 and this would result in a shortfall of baht 149 million for the year. TBBC’s funding position is very sensitive to exchange rates and commodity price fluctuations, both of which are going the wrong way at present. The Thai baht has strengthened 20% against Donor currencies over the last 5 years and commodity prices are rising. It is essential therefore that additional funds are raised. The TBBC programme is still remarkably efficient with the cost of supporting one refugee for a whole year just baht 8,500 (USD 250, EUR 185) and all staff, management and governance costs amount to less than 9% of the budget... Strategic planning: The struggle to sustain adequate funding for refugee support after 25 years has added pressure for a change in the current model of encampment, with refugees almost entirely aid-dependent. Following up on advocacy initiatives launched in 2005, CCSDPT and UNHCR drew up a draft five-year Strategic Plan during 2009 to promote the ideas of increasing refugee self-reliance and bringing refugee services under the RTG system where possible, with greater freedom for refugees to move outside the camps being an important requirement. It was presented to RTG representatives and Donors at a seminar in Chiang Mai in November. Whilst the RTG is sympathetic to refugees having more productive lives, concerns about national security, the impact on Thai communities and the fear of creating a pull factor for new refugees, have so far weighed against any change in the policy of encampment. This means that although progress can be made in certain areas, the strategy as whole is currently unattainable. The directions of the Strategic Plan remain valid and although the scope for creating sustainable livelihoods within camps is very limited, TBBC is pursuing new initiatives. For 2010, new and expanded livelihood opportunities are planned in agriculture, weaving, shelter construction and small business enterprises such as sewing, carpentry and shops. These projects will equip refugees to take advantage of new economic opportunities as they arise but they are likely to create only limited opportunities for reducing basic humanitarian support under current conditions. Even though large numbers of small businesses are common in long-term refugee camps, sometimes visitors to the camps (usually Mae La) are surprised at the number of shops, concluding that the refugees must be relatively ‘well-off’. A survey conducted by consultants commissioned and funded by the European Commission (DG ECHO) during the period found that one third of the population are ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’ with an average household (5.7 people) income less than baht 500 per month (USD 15, EUR 11), whilst ‘better-off’ households earning more than 2,200 baht per month (USD 66, EUR 48) were no more than 9% of the population. Their conclusion was that this provided little scope for reducing assistance and demonstrated the need to encourage and expand entrepreneurial activity in the camps. Support for livelihood activities will encourage self-reliance but all stakeholders must remain committed to finding ways of improving refugee mobility if assistance needs are to be reduced significantly..."

Title: TBBC Programme Report, January-June 2009
Date of publication: June 2009
Description/subject: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "The Thailand Burma Border Consortium (TBBC) has been working with refugees from Burma for 25 years this year, a cause more for sadness than celebration, but also a triumph for hope and perseverance. 25 years has been a long time for TBBC to maintain interest and support, and a long time to test the patience and goodwill of Thailand, the reluctant host. But it has been an eternity for the refugees who have lost their homes and loved ones, continue to live in exile and yearn to go home. The Thailand-Burma border is at the same time beautiful and exotic, dangerous and tragic but, to most of the world, still largely unknown. The 25th anniversary would probably even have gone un-noticed were it not for TBBC’s archives and so to mark this moment in history for posterity TBBC is publishing a border “Scrapbook” in which refugees, exiles, aid workers, journalists, and diplomats; anyone who has lived, worked or visited the border over the last 25 years; will share their memories and experiences to help paint the amazing tapestry that is the Thailand Burma border: A permanent record that will hopefully be looked back on before too long as a fading memory. The TBBC story is well documented in six-month reports going right back to the early days and this latest report describes the programme during the first half of 2009, presenting a preliminary budget of baht 1,213 million (USD 36 million or EUR 26 million) for 20101... Refugee situation: After 25 years there is still no end in sight to the refugee situation. For 25 years the Burmese Army has gradually overrun ethnic territory displacing more than a million people from their homes. It has brought terror to the people as villages have been destroyed or relocated, land confiscated, roads driven through, military bases established and the natural resources exploited. This is vast and remote territory and the Burmese Army has yet to take total control, but during these last few months it appears that another concerted effort has perhaps begun. In the run-up to Burma’s promised General Election in 2010, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) is attempting to convert the ethnic cease-fire armies into Border Guard Forces (BGFs) under Burmese Army command. Most are opposed to the idea but some, including the Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA) are cooperating and helping SPDC launch a renewed offensive against the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA). Since early June at least 4,000 new refugees have crossed the border into Tak Province. These latest arrivals still hope to go home and are being supported on a temporary basis. They are not included in TBBC’s current feeding figure of 134,000. Neither are the majority of the large numbers of new arrivals into the Tak camps since the end of 2007 who are still being verified. It is estimated that currently around 17,000 unregistered people are not receiving rations. The good news is that the long anticipated pilot pre-screening process undertaken by the Royal Thai Government (RTG) to “screen out” those “without a manifestly just claim to asylum” is now well underway. It is possible that by early next year the entire unregistered population will have been screened. This will make the ongoing determination of feeding figures much more straightforward. It will also probably result in an increase in TBBC’s feeding figures. For budgeting purposes TBBC is assuming that about two-thirds of the unregistered will be “screened in” which is the main reason why the 2010 preliminary budget is around 5% higher than in 2009. Although resettlement to third countries continues, with about 17,000 expected to leave this year and around 15,000 projected for 2010, these will be outnumbered by the unregistered “screened in”, together with new arrivals and new births. After another full year of resettlement, the feeding figure at the end of 2010 is projected to be 138,000 people... Funding situation: After experiencing repeated funding shortages over the last few years it is a relief to report that TBBC is currently expecting to more or less break even in 2009. Revised projected expenditures of baht 1,153 million (USD 34 million or EUR 25 million) are expected to be nearly covered by grants thanks to fairly stable prices and exchange rates, and a generous response from TBBC’s Donors. The situation for next year is less certain however. At this stage TBBC has only two committed grants for 2010 and much work needs to be done before the Donors Meeting in November if the preliminary budget of baht 1,213 million (USD 36 million or EUR 26 million) is to be achieved. The budget is very sensitive to commodity prices, exchanges rates and feeding figures. A combination of increases or decreases of 20%, 10% and 10% in these variables respectively, would increase/ decrease funding needs by EUR 7.6 million or USD 10.8 million... Strategic planning: The main reason why it has been difficult to raise enough funds during the last few years is the fact that the situation has gone on for so long with little prospects for change and, in spite of the large third country resettlement programme, refugee numbers have not gone down. There has been a growing realisation that the current model of encampment, with refugees almost entirely aid-dependent, is neither desirable nor sustainable. Recent reports have documented advocacy with the RTG to allow refugees to be more self-reliant through improved skills training and education and by promoting income generation/ employment opportunities. Donors would like to see a clear medium term plan to this effect and have requested an all-stakeholders Workshop with the RTG to develop a shared strategy. The reality is that there are already embryonic programme activities attempting to challenge the status quo and during this period the Committee for Coordination of Services to Displaced Persons in Thailand (CCSDPT) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) have begun drafting a five year Strategic Plan in which all service sectors share the common objectives of helping refugees become more self-reliant and, where possible, incorporating refugee services within the Thai system. Such a strategy will need commitment by all parties, and the necessary allocation of resources. TBBC has reoriented its own Strategic Plan for the next five years looking wherever possible to encourage refugee self-reliance. It represents a fundamental philosophical shift for the organisation from one of strengthening and sustaining services whilst waiting for change, to re-orientating all activities to promote change and durable solutions... TBBC programme: Promoting change has huge implications for TBBC’s human resources. In addition to the on-going challenge of meeting increasing Donor demands for monitoring and accountability, TBBC needs additional resources for research and the development of new activities. Several consultancies have already been undertaken this year, or are about to start, which will help guide the process. A study of TBBC’s building supplies has not only recommended many ways the programme can be improved, but also the potential for new livelihood opportunities in the shelter sector. Another consultancy funded by ECHO will look at current economic coping strategies in the camps to explore ways of expanding these and possible ways of more accurately targeting assistance. During this period TBBC has been recruiting new staff to help manage and monitor the “supply chain”, to expand its food security programme, develop livelihoods opportunities, and to build the capacity of refugee community organisations to take an increasing role in camp management. To deal with the management challenges of all these developments, TBBC will host a Data Management consultancy to review and improve the way TBBC manages its various databases and a TBBC Boardcommissioned Management Consultancy will review TBBC’s management structure and budgeting process... Prospects: The next year is an extremely critical one for Burma as it prepares for the General Election which the junta proclaims will herald a new era of “disciplined” democracy. The prospects, however, are not good with the SPDC showing no signs of making the process inclusive, totally defying the wishes of the international community and its own people. Around 2,100 political prisoners remain incarcerated and Aung San Suu Kyi has just been subjected to a farcical trial resulting in an extension of her house arrest for another 18 months. The election date and law governing it has yet to be revealed and it seems unlikely that the National League for Democracy, the main opposition party, or many of the ethnic nationality groups will participate. Attempts by the international community to reason with the regime are spurned, the UN Secretary General even being refused permission to meet with Aung San Suu Kyi. There is increasing concern about SPDC’s threat to regional peace and security, particularly after recent reports of growing military cooperation with North Korea and suggestions that Burma has ambitions to develop nuclear weapons. Meanwhile the dire humanitarian situation in Burma does not improve. Whilst there had been hopes that international access to the Delta post-Nargis might open up new opportunities for the humanitarian community to expand their programmes and improve access to other parts of the country, any progress is extremely slow and is unlikely to have any material impact at least until after the Election. A major potential destabilising factor is the way SPDC is attempting to deal with ethnic aspirations. The demand that the ethnic cease-fire groups form BGFs mentioned above is meeting resistance, and could result in conflict. All of this bodes ill for the Thailand Burma border. If SPDC is successful in further developing the BGFs along other parts of the border and in other ethnic areas, then the recent Tak emergency is likely to be repeated in the months to come. However, if the other cease-fire groups decide to defy SPDC, the ceasefire agreements might be broken and armed hostilities resumed. Either way, the stakes have been raised, the situation is very volatile and new refugee flows are a distinct possibility."
