Abstract

Aspiring to become a world city in Asia, Hong Kong has made serious attempts to promote global citizenship by partnering with international and local organizations to support international humanitarian projects. Well aware of its affluent conditions, the city government has made series of attempts to contribute in cash or in kind in terms of development and aid projects in recent years. This chapter critically examines how the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has approached international development and aid projects by partnering with international NGOs for reaching out to the areas that require special attention, care, and financial support. This chapter will focus on the way that government and nongovernment organizations coordinate and work together in promoting humanity-related projects, especially examining the uniqueness of the governance structures and models of these development and aid projects adopted by the HKSAR Government. This chapter also reflects upon a new mode of governance in promoting humanitarian projects through strengthening both governmental and nongovernmental cooperation.
