Other roles played with the NGOs according to Deacon Obi include: mobilization of global networks, gathering information on local conditions through contacts around the world; developing global network of supporters to conditions requiring attention, and creating emergency response.

He pointed out that NGOs usually participate in Intergovernmental Organizations, IGOs meetings/conferences where they are expected to build social coalitions, raise new issues, support IGOs development, address IGOs meetings, submit documents, improve skills of participants as well as increase expertise on issues.
