  • Journal of Rural Development published by the National Institute of RUral Development carries excellent articles on the issues of various agencies in rural development. In some cases, articles are available in the Asian Economic Review. The Economic and Political Weekly had earlier covered topics related to the subject. You may also refer some of the Sociology/Social work related journals for getting some research work in the area of your interest.

    NGO must have development funds. Otherwise, you will be disappointed in the results.

    The Role of NGO is politicized and ideological based, you may visit Funding Autonomus bodies for the Rural Development. e.g. CAPART Web Site.

    in the field of development NGOs have done lot of demonstrations and have come with new ideas for development alternatives. Some NGOs may not be good , but their value can not be denied. Any Govt. does not have time and expertise to do demonstrations . but careful analysis of most of the development schemes shows that it is based on some successful demonstrations done by some NGOs.

    What we lack is appropriate monitoring system. NGOs role in shaping policies by creating public pressure also needs to be recognised.

    there are various documents which show what role NGOs play in the field of development.

    NGO's dedicated to humanitarian work are doomed to failure. Funding is not there.
    An NGO dedicated to developing markets in the private sector can succeed as did , but practical experience and funding must be available to the NGO. This does not happen overnight, but when it does the results are excellent. See
