Non-government and community-based organizations (NGOs/CBOs)

A large variety of players ranging from local and informal civil society actors to more formalized community-based organizations and NGOs. These organizations complement government activities and are involved in local level development, advocacy, action research and social mobilisation. They are important players and apart from their development work often provide a voice for the poor and marginal groups.
