The Changing Aid Landscape in East Asia: The Rise of Non-DAC Providers


This paper summarizes research conducted by the Asia Foundation for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The research was designed to provide development cooperation stakeholders with an understanding of four issues: (i) trends in the value and nature of aid to developing East Asia from non-DAC bilateral providers and the private sector; (ii) the objectives and strategies of non-DAC development partners; (iii) how non-DAC providers are changing the nature of development partner engagement in developing East Asia; and (iv) the implications for DAC aid. The research examined non-DAC flows to eight countries: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Timor Leste, and Vietnam. It addressed three kinds of providers: Arab, Asian Southern, and private.
