Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation (AADC)

A New Paradigm of Development Cooperation

 

The Asia Foundation and Korea Development Institute (KDI) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) in December 2010 and launched a collaborative research project “Asia Approaches for Development Cooperation(AADC)” for a more efficient development cooperation partnership within the Asian nations.

 

South-South development cooperation conferences bring together Asian Development experts both from emerging donors and traditional donors to discuss the effectiveness and the prospects of aid. Furthermore, this research project tries to address the gap between emerging and traditional donors and provides a forum for better cooperation mutual understanding. The goal of the ongoing AADC series is to provide a forum for sharing perspectives and approaches among both emerging and traditional development actors on critical issues facing Asia.

 

The Asia Foundation publishes a report based on the experts’ dialogues which is held twice a year, followed by an annual Author’s Workshop. The publication is then utilized for a more effective development cooperation.

 

Due to the increased aid volume from emerging donor nations in the southern hemisphere, our contribution to the international level discussion further promotes a new paradigm of development aid.
