This case study examines the impact of direct funding on the development of the non-governmental (NGO) sector in Bangladesh. In particular, the study focuses on the changing relationships between large, national NGOs and small, local NGOs and community based organisations (CBOs). The study also attempts to move the discussion on funding beyond looking at the impact on individual NGOs to examine how it has impacted on the development of the sector as a whole. Bangladesh was chosen as the first southern case study because of its highly developed NGO sector and because it has the longest experience with direct funding.
