Authors (non HEDON members)
Dr. Manfred NiekischIt is certainly not an exaggeration to say that the world-wide movement for human rights, nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources had its beginning in non-governmental organizations - NGOs. Many NGOs were founded to oppose plans for logging concessions, power stations or policies which neglected the feelings and needs of the local populations. An important root of the NGO movement was and continues to be the need to compensate for the lack of activities by governments.
