NGOs and Environmental Sustainability:Issues and a Research Agenda (W-20)
Shahrukh Rafi Khan, SDPI
This paper argues that the key contribution of development NGOs is building community organizations or transforming community based organizations. In turn, these local institutions can utilize local knowledge and development NGO expertise for successful resource management. One of the major strengths of the participatory approach being employed by development NGOs is their close contact with communities and the accountability this leads to. The paper ends with proposing a research agenda and methods for pursuing it.
