Asian Perspectives: Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
The Asia Foundation, in cooperation with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), invites you to an Asian Perspectives event on Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation.
The global development cooperation landscape is changing. In addition to the traditional donors in OECD countries, there are a wide range of emerging Asian providers of development assistance who look at development in an entirely different way. Asian countries have emerged as game changers in the development assistance arena, challenging traditional notions of aid, reshaping global aid architecture, and placing new challenges on the global development agenda. Recognizing the importance of these new actors to future development policy and practice, the Asia Foundation has, since 2010, provided a platform for providers of development assistance from throughout the Asia region to share their views on development cooperation and international development challenges alongside traditional donors.
This April, government officials and policy specialists from China, India, Indonesia, and South Korea will join their peers in the United States to explore “Development Cooperation in the Asian Century” and “Post 2015 Development Challenges.”
