Boston 12:00 Non-Governmental Organizations Programme –
The Director Shunn Theingi was very pleased to answer the following questions for The New York Times:
- Taking into account that NGO faces limited resources, do you think they should allocate efforts to preventing a national disaster or instead acting after the disaster?
- What kind of Key Performance Indicators or indicators should the NGOs be taking into account by to measure the advances on the prevention of the natural disasters?
- What can NGOs do when they face restrictions by antidemocratic governments to help people after a natural disaster? This is what happened in Myanmar in 2008.
