Neglect of international nongovernmental organization network

The major IGOs have specific mandates which tend to de-emphasize any need to relate to other organizations, whether IGO or INGO, having related programme concerns. As a result, little attention, if any, is given by them to the importance of improving the inter-organizational structure focusing on a network of related problems. Where outside contacts are made by the IGO, they are made because a project can best be completed by a specific INGO, for example. The possibility that by facilitating the development and operation on the INGO network as a whole it might not even be necessary for the IGO to initiate many of the specific projects, is not considered.
