The Hungarian Non-governmental Development Organization(NGDO) sector – Initial observations

Selmeczi, Anna
The 3rd High Level Forum on aid effectiveness adopted the Accra Agenda for Action, where article 13 recommends governments to broaden their “country level policy dialogue on development” and “engage with civil society organizations.” Article 16 defines aid as “building partnerships for development” and sees such partnerships “most effective when they fully harness the energy, skills and experience of all development actors – bilateral and multilateral donors, global funds, CSOs and the private sector.” Furthering this call, the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation urges governments, civil society organizations, private sector, local and regional organizations to formulate "a new partnership that is broader and more inclusive". Setting out to assess how such partnerships operate under Hungary's decade-long new donorship era, this paper puts forward the preliminary findings concerning the role, the impact, and the challenges of the Hungarian NGOs in international development. This research is part of a larger project called "Update of the current status of implementation of international/bilateral trade regimes with ODA recipients and the current role of civil society and private sectors as development actors in the new EU Member states."
