Strengthening local capacity in Haiti: one more thing on the list of “shoulds”

In the Huffington Post Mark Schuller, an anthropologist working in Haiti and professor of NGO development, lists a number of policy recommendations for international NGOs and other agencies working in Haiti. His key point, in my view, is addressing the need for greater involvement of the local, beneficiary population. More participation will provide more ownership by those benefiting from the project. It also means the local population will have a voice and a stake in the process, and a greater chance for control over what is happening.

I would like to add one more to the list of “shoulds”.
