Big NGOs prepare to move south

Disintermediation, power-sharing, relocation, centre-shifting: call it what you will, but here’s the reality: the world’s largest NGOs, most of which were established in very different economic and political times in the middle of the last century in the global north, are now heading south.

But as big organisations focus on transferring their offices from Europe to Africa, are they missing the bigger picture? Can moving your HQ really change the rampant inequalities in an aid system where just 1% of funding goes to NGOs in developing countries?
