The Asia Foundation and Korea Development Institute: Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation

The contemporary aid landscape is changing dramatically and Asian donors are playing an increasingly larger role in aid delivery. Against this backdrop, and following on the 2011-2014 collaboration between The Asia Foundation and the Korea Development Institute (KDI), the partners in San Francisco on February 20 signed an extension of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on “South-South Development Cooperation Dialogue.” Extended through December 2015, the series will continue to spotlight the unique perspective of emerging Asian donor countries, including Korea’s role in shaping aid effectiveness in the developing world.

KDI is Korea’s premier policy think tank, providing rigorous perspective and expert advice on a range of Korean and international policy issues. The Asia Foundation is a nonprofit international development organization increasingly recognized as a respected resource for locally-driven, context-specific, and flexible approaches in addressing the region’s most critical development issues.
