The Crowded Aid Sector: Competition for Means at The Expense of the Goal

3 oktober 2023 - Lieselot Vroom & Frank Pot
On the 23rd and 24th of February the AMID trainees in the Netherlands and Kenya attended their first of four two-day physical training sessions of the AMID year, the Dutch trainees in Amsterdam and the Kenyan trainees in Nairobi. In Amsterdam, the students reflected on the most important developments that are taking place in the field of international development and were provided several lenses to recognize and understand the developments within the field through a lecture by Dr. Sara Kinsbergen. Highlighted in this lecture were the (1) rise of new development goals, (2) rise of new actors in the development arena and (3) new financing instruments. When talking about new actors, a few students entered into an interesting discussion about competition in the NGO sector and how there is competition for funding. An interesting topic to shine some more light on in this blog.
