INGO and NGO

As agents of change INGOs are constantly faced with issues of
legitimacy, representivity and needing to prove their contribution
towards achieving the goals of development. Within the current
global socio-political context, what ways can INGOs establish
legitimacy, representivity and enhance their effectiveness?
Identify case studies to illustrate how different NGOs respond to
these challenges.
