Article publication date: 1 June 1999
Compares Palestine and Cambodia with respect to the involvement of NGOs in generating sustainable development. Both countries have suffered war and both still struggle for a fragile peace; success appears to hinge on the international community’s ability to achieve economic development and real social and political improvements. Results can be achieved through: co‐operation between donor services and local authorities, using assistance to increase local entrepreneurship, economic independence and active participation; making formal agreements between NGO and local authorities as to duties and remit of the aid operations; establishment of a workable accountability system; formation of a structured co‐ordination framework; and using UN agencies more frequently and extensively.
