Organizing by projects: a strategy for local development. The case of NGOs in a developing country.

Olga Navarro-Flores

North and South NGOs have been “partners” in international development for more than decade. Studies have documented their approaches and strategies, yet little is still known about how they organize and how their projects help them to achieve their mission. We propose a contextualized and historical perspective to better understand how and why NGOs organize by projects; and how this strengthens their strategy and their commitment to local development.
