Across Asia, like other parts of the world, the Covid-19 pandemic has had significant implications for public health and safety, social and economic security, governance, and political stability. Many countries across Asia are facing challenges that impact their ability to contain the spread of the pandemic and the socio-economic crisis. In the face of such challenges, the Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation (AADC) aims to bolster Asia’s overall preparedness for the global pandemic by sharing the knowledge and responses to Covid-19 across the region and beyond.
Organized jointly by KDI School of Public Policy and Management and The Asia Foundation, the AADC 2020 provides a forum for exchange of ideas among key international development experts in Asian nations on the changing landscape of international cooperation amidst and beyond Covid-19, producing recommendations to be shared with the public.
