Managing Non-Governmental Development Organisations: The Case of Australia

Kiraka, Ruth (2003) Managing Non-Governmental Development Organisations: The Case of Australia. Working Paper. Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.


The Australian Non-Governmental Development Organisations (NGDO) sector is generally well developed, organised and managed. There exist clear lines of accountability to institutions such as the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and the Australian Council for Overseas Aid (ACFOA). However, several challenges face the sector. Among these are: developing adequate governance and management systems with a focus on recipients of services; establishing professional and ethical fundraising strategies; delivering quality and sustainable development assistance; and developing advocacy and development education programs aimed at educating key stakeholders to ensure their continued support for NGDO work.
