BBC NEWS; Can aid do more harm than good?

Once an emergency is identified, he says, the NGOs' public relations machine takes over and "there is a terrible temptation to look around for the very worst stories".

Just listened to From Our Own Correspondent from 23rd January. (Unfortunately, BBC do not do transcripts). Report on the use of NGO's in Zambia being self-serving and not addressing problems. Also obsessed with Talking without any agreement on when Actions should take place. Plenty of NGO driven workshops sustaining the Hospitality industry. Talking without actions or timeline for Actions was one of my Key take outs from BarCamp Canberra this year #bcc2010 http://barcamp.org/BarCampCanberra
