International aid agencies must work in partnership with local organizations

International aid agencies must work in partnership with local organizations | International aid trends from a Belgian perspective | Scoop.it
It is one of the major blind-spots in international humanitarian aid. But recent and ongoing emergencies demonstrate the crucial role that local people have to play in the aftermath of disasters.

Much of the humanitarian work currently taking place in Syria and neighbouring countries would not be possible without networks of dedicated organizations which understand where need is greatest and how best to respond.

Can international civil society organizations be nimble?

Can international civil society organizations be nimble? | International aid trends from a Belgian perspective | Scoop.it
In the past 20 years, we've seen the disruption of the record, photo, newspaper, and other industries. Though music, photos, and news continue to play a big role in people’s lives, the old ‘owners’ of the space were disrupted by changes in technology and new expectations from consumers. Similar changes are happening in the international civil space, and organizations working there need to think more systematically about what these changes mean.

Dewesternising aid - Le Monde diplomatique

Dewesternising aid - Le Monde diplomatique | International aid trends from a Belgian perspective | Scoop.it
International aid is necessary largely because of the failings of the state (see Sweet sound of global philanthropy): the less public authorities fulfil their basic missions, the more civil society must do for itself.

An important new paper from some big development names – Shanta Devarajan and Stuti Khemani from the World Bank, and Michael Walton (ex Bank, now at Harvard Kennedy School) – directs a slightly fierce (but welcome) political economy gaze at donor efforts to strengthen civil society (one of the more recent developmental fads).

Jaarrapport 2012 - 420 miljoen geschrapt - 11.11.11 wil af van kwetsbaar budget

Jaarrapport 2012 - 420 miljoen geschrapt - 11.11.11 wil af van kwetsbaar budget | International aid trends from a Belgian perspective | Scoop.it

In 2012 beleefde het budget ontwikkelingssamenwerking de grootste snoei in jaren: in totaal werd 420 miljoen euro geschrapt. Ondanks de groter wordende noden in ontwikkelingslanden als gevolg van globalisering, stijgende voedselprijzen en de klimaatsverandering. In haar rapport duidt 11.11.11 de besparingen en onderzocht ook het waarom. De Belgische ontwikkelingssamenwerking, zo blijkt, creëerde zelf verschillende flessenhalzen, waardoor er op het eind van het jaar bestedingsdruk ontstaat maar ook mogelijkheid tot besparen. 11.11.11 wil af van dit 'kwetsbaar' budget en stelt een overbruggingsfonds én een dringende aanpak van de knelpunten voor.

Pratiques et enjeux en Belgique de l'efficacité de la contribution des OSC au développement

What’s the same as MPH?

Northern focus, pegged to this year’s UK presidency of the G8 (although the G8 is not the global steering committee it was (or at least thought it was) back in 2005).

The wristbands and celebs, which should take development debates outside the usual circuits (a good thing, in case more wonky readers are in any doubt).

Learning from Failure in Development

Even local people and organizations, who should be benefiting and becoming empowered through development aid, often hide failures because they are afraid of not being considered in next year's aid budget.
