Learning through Networking and Information Exchange: How NGOs can Increase their Impact

Summary: How can international NGOs (INGOs)
use networking, learning &
information systems to increase their
development impact? What is the
state of their systems for accessing
& processing information? How could
they become more successful in
sharing & learning information?
In research by the London School of Economics and Political
Science and the Institute for Development Policy and
Management it is argued that learning from the field is essential
to enable INGOs to influence wider policy-making and improve
local accountability. As their focus changes from operational work
to international advocacy, INGOs must strengthen institutional
learning structures and learning skills.
