To what extent are INGOs committed to supporting the role of local NGOs? Doesn’t that mean putting yourselves out of a job?

While not all INGOs work in the capacity development field necessarily, the majority have partnerships with national or local actors. What is critical is that we ensure these partnerships adhere to the key principles of partnership (Equality, Transparency, Results-Oriented Approach, Responsibility and Complementarity) and are built on a platform of mutual respect. Our commitments note that INGOs have a key role to play in building the capacity of local NGOs and CSO partners and we are committed to developing quality partnerships for quality results.
