Coalitions for Change: CR+ID
The Australian Government and The Asia Foundation, through the Coalitions for Change (CfC) flagship program, hopes to effect policy reform by encouraging civil society, the private sector, the academe, and the government to work together and contribute to transformative change.
One of CfC’s key reform agenda is to rationalize infrastructure planning and investments through the Coordinating Roads and Infrastructure Investments for Development (CR+ID) project. CfC through CR+ID, aims to minimize fragmentation in public infrastructure investments by:
– Bringing national agencies, local governments, and local business associations to agree on priority infrastructure investments based on key local economic drivers
– Institutionalizing local businesses’ participation in local economic development planning
– Establishing provincial or regional databases on roads and infrastructures
