Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation
Organized jointly by the Korea Development Institute and The Asia Foundation, Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation dialogue series (AADC) brings together development experts and government officials from Asia and beyond. In September 2017, AADC dialogues focused on how Asian countries are accelerating opportunities for women and girls through their cooperation programs and where more can be done. Highlights included a discussion of how Chinese textile companies are protecting women workers and promoting women’s leadership in Asia; how Indonesian women are transferring knowledge about their role in Indonesia’s reformasi with women’s organizations in southern Thailand; how home-based workers across South Asia are collaborating to optimize their role in the supply chain; and why regional infrastructure schemes, like the Asia Africa Growth Corridor, must address gender issues.
