AusAID, The Asia Foundation Address Critical Needs Across Asia-Pacific

May 30, 2012

As Australia strives to close development gaps in places most affected by poverty, conflict, and instability, the Asia-Pacific region remains its highest priority area of focus. On May 29, 2012, the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and The Asia Foundation announced an expansion of their Partnership Agreement over three years to address critical development challenges in the region. This landmark agreement is designed to complement existing programs at the country level and support additional strategic collaboration between the two organizations. Drawing on The Asia Foundation’s strong local networks and politically-informed program strategies, the expanded agreement will build on previous successful Foundation and AusAID collective experience to address critical development challenges.

This slideshow captures some highlights of programs stemming from our collaboration with AusAID that have been implemented across Asia since 2004.
