World Bank work with nongovernmental organizations
Salmen, Lawrence F.
Eaves, A. Paige
This report reviews 24 out of 202 Bank projects that involved nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in order to identify ways to improve Bank-NGO collaboration. It identifies five functional categories of NGO interaction with the Bank along a public-private continuum, based on the varying degrees to which they represent social goals on the public end of the continuum and economic goals on the private end. Discussion focuses on the benefits and difficulties arising from the involvement of NGOs in each category in Bank-supported projects. It recommends involving NGOs before implementation, developing creative financing mechanisms to support them, and learning what they have to teach Bank staff about motivation, education and organization. The challenge for the Bank is to forge institutional links between governments and NGOs that extend and complement government capabilities. Governments and NGOs must learn to respect each other so they can work toward such mutual goals as poverty alleviation.
