As a I mentioned in another post on radio, many of the NGO projects I've seen recently are great ideas but unsustainable business models. There are far too many experiments going on aimed at bringing short-term successes for donors rather than long term benefit to communities. There are also good ideas like the Building Bridges Peace Project which also had much more potential than was eventually achieved before funds ran out.

I have respect for some of the data journalism the BBC is doing because they're in it for the long term. Like keeping track of British casualties in Afghanistan. But of course that's not the full picture of what's going on there. Don't suppose anyone is keeping track of that. Good article today on other forms of data journalism.
