398. NGOs: Blessing or Curse? - Part 1

Description

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs), often referred to as the Third Sector, occupy an important place globally in the fields of development, human rights, humanitarian action, environment, the realisation of social and economic rights and public action. They have been around in various forms for centuries but they came to prominence post 1945, alongside the establishment of the United Nations.

This Geo Factsheet focusses on the very large NGOs, the INGOs and poses the question; are the INGOs the most effective way of delivering aid to the developing world?
