    The usual result of this process where I work (the environmental and sustainable development space of small islands) has been that small, locally based Non-Profits and NGOs end up going out of business, while large international NGOs and their local affiliates gradually take over the civil society functions because donors find it cheaper and more “secure” to go with the big guys, in the service of regional and international goals and standards that may not be appropriate for individual small islands.

    I’m sure that similar situations do not arise in the US (humor).
