Managing Non-Governmental\ud Development Organisations: The\ud Case of Australia

By Ruth Kiraka

Abstract

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