Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation: Focus on Women and Girls’ Empowerment
Organized jointly by the Korea Development Institute (KDI) and The Asia Foundation, the Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation (AADC) dialogue series brings together development experts and government officials from the Asia region and beyond. In 2017, the AADC dialogues focus on how Asian countries are tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through their cooperation programs. The first conference in Manila explored planned urbanization and the New Urban Agenda (SDG 11) while the second meeting in Ulaanbaatar discussed women and girls’ empowerment (SDG 5). This report covers the proceedings and outcomes of the Ulaanbaatar meeting, featuring presentations and discussions by development experts, innovators, activists and practitioners from governments, companies, academia, NGOs, and multilateral organizations across Asia.
