6. Forms of cooperation adapted to the context and objectives to be pursued. These agreements should be formalized by a written and legally enforceable program cooperation agreement or a small funding agreement when funds, supplies or other resources are transferred from A Billion Doors to the CSO and vice versa. Formal partnerships that do not require a transfer of resources from A Billion Doors are governed by a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The MoU is used to formalize agreements between A Billion Doors and one or more CSO partners to pursue common goals at the global, regional or national level, with each party contributing its own resources. Memoranda of Understanding are typically used to define strategic alliances and explain agreements on intentions, areas of common interest, areas of collaboration, and operational engagement. •A Cooperation Programme Agreement (PCA). A PCA is the legal (umbrella) agreement used to establish the partnership framework with a CSO that defines the rights and obligations of the parties and the terms and conditions of the partnership. A PCA is used when there is a cumulative transfer of resources over $100,000 to A Billion Doors. •A Small Scale Financing Agreement (SSFA).
An SSFA is the legal agreement that defines the expected results, the associated resource requirements and the rights and obligations of A Billion Doors and the partner CSO. It is used when the transfer of CSO resources does not exceed $100,000 over a twelve-month period. In the humanitarian context, SSFA can also be used to accelerate the transfer of up to three months of programme deliveries. Informal partnerships are designed to produce results for the least vulnerable and are used when cooperation does not require formal agreement. An informal partnership could be used, for example, when organizations work together to identify child rights issues that need to be addressed at the national level, share interests or share knowledge. • They may or may not involve the transfer of funds; • They involve shared ownership and shared risks, responsibilities and benefits; • They are trained both at the national level (mainly) and at the global level; • They include various joint activities: advocacy, programming, service delivery, advocacy, knowledge sharing, research, prevention, capacity-building and fund-raising. 9. Responsibility for the performance of the obligations and obligations of the partnership. Partner organizations have an ethical obligation to fulfill their responsibility to the partnership in a responsible and contextual manner.
They may agree to carry out activities only if they have the means, skills and abilities necessary to fulfil those obligations.

Mutual commitment to the core values of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the principles of good governance, in particular transparency, accountability and sound financial management.
