Role of NGOs in the social sector

socio-economic development society is the prime duty of the state in resource-constrained countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Bhutan. This can be achieved by participation of all segments of the society. The limited capabilities of the governments have made it difficult to respond effectively to the growing needs of population at grass roots level.

Although, the Saarc's platform is a priority, the social scenario of the region has rarely changed during the last five/six years. It is difficult for both-,people and governments- to catch up with the rest of the world. Not only does the Saarc lag behind in per capita income and growth, but also in its social and Human Development (HD) indicators, particularly in respect of those relating to gender equity.

Hygiene & Sanitation

Sanitation and hygiene are critical to health, survival, and development. Many countries are challenged in providing adequate sanitation for their entire populations, leaving people at risk for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)-related diseases. Throughout the world, an estimated 2.5 billion people lack basic sanitation (more than 35% of the world's population) 1, 2. Basic sanitation is described as having access to facilities for the safe disposal of human waste (feces and urine), as well as having the ability to maintain hygienic conditions, through services such as garbage collection, industrial/hazardous waste management, and wastewater treatment and disposal. Without immediate acceleration in progress, the world will not achieve the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goal (MDG) sanitation target (i.e., to halve the proportion of people without sustainable access to basic sanitation by 2015)

Govt moves for greater oversight of NGOs

 

The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet on Thursday approved new policy framework to regulate activities of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Pakistan, more than two years after Dr Shakeel Afridi facilitated the US forces to raid the OBL compound in Abbottabad.
The ECC, which met under the chair of Finance Minister Senator Ishaq Dar, approved a draft policy framework for regulation of organisations receiving foreign contributions. In the absence of a policy framework, Economic Affairs Division was restrained to sign new Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) with International NGOs, particularly those with ongoing operations and whose MOUs were about to expire.
