Abstract: Non-governmental development organizations are expected to focus on countries with poor governance. The figures show that NGDOs spend relatively more money in countries with moderately good governance than in those with bad governance. While they do tend to focus more than bilateral donors on poor countries, they make some curious geographical choices. It seems that they too have their ‘donor darlings’: they prefer Costa Rica to Cuba, Ghana to Togo, and Georgia to Azerbaijan.
