comment:
"Offers practical guidance on how NGOs can achieve sustainability. It identifies three interdependent conditions: the impact of the work of the organization must be enduring; continuity of funding must be ensured; and the organization itself must remain viable. These facets are interactive and, when realized, mutually reinforcing, leading to a ''virtuous spiral' towards genuine sustainability. This is the companion volume to Fowler's pioneering 'Striking a balance'. The author has worked for over 20 years with international development NGOs in Africa, Asia and the US. He is cofounder of the International NGO Training and Research Centre (INTRAC)." (catalogue Earthscan 2001) // For Fowler, sustainability is 'agility with insight', as simple as that. The book oozes with case studies, mainly of experienced NGOs, explaining how they overcame multifarious problems and settled down into the path of success. With some excellent discussion of questions like 'should we commercialise?' and 'should we have private sector as partners?', it is less of a guide than a collection of insights." (Spore 91, February 2001)
