Towards sustainable poverty alleviation: Building NGO accountability to beneficiaries in microenterprise development programs

Chu, Vien Thi Thanh (2015) Towards sustainable poverty alleviation: Building NGO accountability to beneficiaries in microenterprise development programs. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis investigates the operations of non-government organisations (NGOs) engaging in microenterprise development programs in Bangladesh and Indonesia, to understand the nature and mechanisms of NGO accountability to the poor. Findings reveal both barriers and mechanisms contributing to success within these programs. A range of mechanisms enhance both accountability of NGOs and the poor, facilitating more effective programs and sustainable poverty alleviation.
