NGDO-foreign donor relations

As far as NGDO-foreign donor relations is concerned, local NGDOs have continued to rely on foreign assistance for bulk of their funds and the funding system has remained short-term and results-oriented, or donor-driven, until now. However, there is growing awareness among progressive-minded donors of the need for NGDOs to overcome their dependence on traditional development financing and become more financially-independent and sustainable. But such realization comes with an increasing demand for accountability. Donors want to see their scarce resources used more efficiently and to have more visible impact on poverty reduction.
