Find the International NGO supporting the socioeconomic development, recovery or economic stability of Zambia.

International NGO activities include, but are not limited to, environmental, social, advocacy and human rights work. They can work to promote social or political change on a broad scale or very locally. NGOs play a critical part in developing society, improving communities, and promoting citizen participation.

NGOs also play a very important role in the field of international relations. The field of international relations has been mainly concerned with wars, struggles for power, and the efforts of countries to achieve the best national interest. In the decisive issues of global politics, NGOs are increasingly becoming involved.

Over the past four decades, more scholars are suggesting the significant roles of NGOs in promoting international understanding and cooperation. Countries are not only losing sovereignty in a globalized economy, but they are also sharing powers including security, political, and social roles at the core of sovereignty with international, business organizations and NGOs. This results from the increased emphasis on private sector initiatives, the declining role of states and the emergence of civil society. This shift among private sectors, states and civil society has brought a lot of challenges, opportunities, and issues for many NGOs.

In almost every corner of the world, NGOs have risen to bigger prominence. Many NGOs that consist of nonofficial groups in different nations has come together with the objective of promoting common interests through global actions.

The range of the work of NGOs is nearly as broad as their interests. Because they provide services; implement, shape, enforce, and monitor national and global commitments; do scientific, legal, and political analysis; and change institutions, norms have been raised. Some NGOs are organized in a bid to promote the interests of a particular group. Some of them are also established to perform a particular task and advance a movement. They normally function as agents of global understanding, as pressure groups, and as shapers of public opinion. NGOs differ in various dimensions, which are highlighted in the literature. Such dimensions might be used generally to classify them. And such classifications can deem NGOs as global actors.

In providing relevant assessments and information, NGOs often play a substantial role in taking up political issues, which need to be addressed in global politics. Also, in practice, NGOs enhance the knowledge base in global policymaking by distributing and organizing information material through conferences and other activities. These channels and activities of influence are generally recognized under international law, either implicitly or explicitly through established practice. NGOs also organize seminars, workshops and conferences independently of inter-governmental meetings that are aimed at enhancing relevant knowledge.
