Sustainable Development of SIDS; NGOs


There is a consensus today that government should regulate more, because deregulation has failed, and NGOs have shown to be responsible actors. This situation demands a new balance between public and private domain. Some use the term “the third sector” (Golob et al., 2007, p. 632). NGOs should develop alternatives for production and distribution like corporatism. Corporatism is a social organization that groups people according to the community of their interests and a system to coordinate labor and capital in relation to their common interest.

The main predisposition of NGOs is to act. They are close to the issues and the people affected. The problem is that NGOs are not well connected with in the NGO domain and interface poorly with government and corporations.

ESD is a tool used by NGOs to raise awareness on the topic of climate change.
