Government to government aid is support, often financial, given by the people and governments of wealthier countries to help poorer countries deal with a variety of devleopmental challenges such as humanitarian disasters. Bilateral aid is the assistance given from one country to another and this can include money, equipment, training and loans. Multilateral aid is accumulated from donor countries by multilateral organisations, who then disburse it to beneficiary countries. Examples of multilateral organisations that handle multilateral aid, that are active in Zambia, are the World Bank and the various United Nations agencies. They are also known as Intergovernmental organisations, or IGOs.
International NGOs play various roles on the world stage, such as program or project implementation and advocacy. Their scope for influence varies, with their members serving as experts, diplomats, advocates for specific issues, or groups, protesters and activists.
