Increasingly, Non-Governmental Organizations operate in a global environment. On the one hand, there are many NGOs acting at an international level, implementing projects in different developing countries. On the other hand there is a growing trend, reinforced by the economic crisis, of tapping international sources for fundraising.
In this context, platforms like ICFO have a great opportunity, albeit a challenge, to reflect these tendencies and carry out their mission, enhance their growth (and that of the Third Sector) and strengthen the confidence of donors at the international level.
Some of the challenges to consolidate a powerful international network of evaluators, and so reinforce the confidence of donors around the world, include:
- Encouraging and aiding the establishment of independent NGOs monitoring agencies in emerging and developing countries (which have a powerful emerging middle class).
- Facilitating the exchange of information and experiences among evaluators.
- Coordinating the work of different agencies and also to standardize processes.
