Disaster relief is often seen as world a way from human development. In terms of development and integrating nation sustaining intelligence, mathematically/systemically This is extremely illogical or highly political or both!
Its the only time foreigners (eg empire former rulers) are asked to come in by independence national government; their funds are to do relief of an overwhelming disaster like a cyclone killing hundreds of thousands but not to stay and transfer knowhow to0locals. Brac sort of bridged the two skillsets (best of both systems)by accident, Consequences were spectacular - a model 1billion girls development has analogously adapted... essentially barefoot nd women empowerment models in asia will over 1872-2019 swapped or multiplied the intelligence of abed's greatest cooperation design probably ever seen in 2 millennials
