Registered author(s):

    This work is a survey of the existing datasets on development NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) and of the related empirical literature. We define NGOs as non-profit and non-governmental aid intermediaries, public good providers that channel donorsÂ’ funds; these can be both international NGOs and local NGOs in recipient countries. We organize the surveyed datasets in four categories following the unit of observation: information at the NGO level on Northern NGOs, accounts of aid flows through different channels (among which NGOs), information at the NGO level on Southern NGOs, information at the project level. This paper aims to be a research tool for scholars willing to engage in the empirical analysis of NGOs in the field of development, and it is an ongoing work that will be updated regularly.
