A seminar to reflect on the role of development NGOs

The Fundacion El Taller organised a third Think Tank in November 1991, held in a village near Santiago, Chile, and attended by representatives of over 50 development NGOs from around the globe. It was agreed that NGOs should maintain their autonomy from governments but work closely with civil society to best further NGOs' aims. Strong South-South dialogue is vital, and North-South relations should be founded on equality in the process of development.
