Problem

Inadequate facilities for international nongovernmental organization action

Nature:
Most INGOs require the same basic administrative services and facilities, but because of great sensitivity to their independence and autonomy of their programme, they are reluctant to pool services and facilities in order to increase the efficiency of their administrative operations. This is partly due to an inability to distinguish between the objectives of the organization and the facilities and professional skills required to achieve them. Whether in capital cities of developing or developed countries, their restricted budgets force them to use minimum facilities, which are often inadequate and insufficient. Their offices may be so scattered that face-to-face contact between organization staff members is infrequent. Organizations are often poorly housed and equipped. A critical mass is not built up.
