NGDOs' role in building poor people's capacity to benefit from globalization
There has been a growing recognition of the role of Non-Governmental Development Organizations (NGDOs) in strengthening civil society as an effective strategy for poverty eradication. This approach includes broad-based development ownership and empowerment of the poor. The paper argues that in the context of globalization NGDOs need to focus on expanding space for poor people to engage with emerging forms of states and markets for their livelihood advantage. This implies creating space where the poor can effectively negotiate the global discourses and frameworks of development from their particular experiences and images of reality. In this position, the poor will find room for manoeuvre within which to influence the local, national and global processes and structures for their benefit. Copyright © 2004 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
