Title: Local Resource Centre [Myanmar]
Description/subject: "Shortly following Cyclone Nargis, a large number of national and international NGOs established LRC to assist local communities and civil society groups in the collective effort for relief and rehabilitation. 
The Burnet Institute led the establishment of LRC in collaboration with a broad partnership of organizations, including: World Concern, the HIV/AIDS Alliance, The Capacity Building Initiative (CBI and Oxfam. LRC was launched on May 15, 2008 to enable better coordination between local and international implementers, advocate on behalf of local groups, ensure access to capacity development services and ultimately strengthen the collaborative response to Cyclone Nargis between local and international organizations. Following the Nargis Phase of operation (May 2008 – September 2010), LRC shifted its focus from disaster response to the holistic development of indigenous CSOs. LRC officially registered as a local NGO in May 2012.".....Top Downloads: How To Succeed In Your Work... LNGO Directory 2012 (English)... INGO Directory 2012 (English)...

Humanitarian Imperative: INGOs recognise that the right to receive humanitarian assistance, and to offer it, is a fundamental humanitarian principle that should be enjoyed by all citizens of all countries. When we give humanitarian assistance it is not a political or partisan act and should not be viewed as such. Our primary motivation for working in this country or in any other country in which we work is to improve the human condition and alleviate human suffering... 2. Non-discrimination: INGOs follow a policy of non-discrimination regarding ethnic origin, sex, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, political orientation marital status or age in regard to the target populations with whom we work..."

Title: Caveats, Cautions and Stringent Conditions
Date of publication: August 1995
Description/subject: (On the suggestion that NGOs should go into Burma) "SLORC's shift into longer-term planning has not changed its basic military logic. The military no doubt hopes that NGO involvement in Burma will further its Low-Intensity Conflict strategy, whose final goal is control over all the "liberated areas" currently administered by the non-burman ethnic groups. Hard collective bargaining with SLORC and insistence on specific conditions will reduce this danger... NGOs should not go into Burma at this time. If they do decide to go in, however, they should negotiate collectively with SLORC, and stick to firm guidelines as suggested in this memo..." Burma Peace Foundation April 1994/August 1995
