Summary of publication
The grant order provides $1.8 million to The Asia Foundation over three years, starting in 2016. The funds support DFAT to respond quickly and efficiently to a shifting landscape of rapid growth and poverty reduction in Asia, through a more innovative and transformational aid program.
Through the partnership with DFAT, The Asia Foundation (TAF) will provide relevant and high-quality tools, analysis and knowledge that will contribute to improving the effectiveness of DFAT’s development policy and programs. The Partnership will support implementation of Australia’s aid policy framework: Australian Aid: promoting prosperity, reducing poverty, enhancing stability and DFAT’s Effective Governance Strategy, as well as TAF’s program priorities and commitment to the region.
The Partnership supports research, analysis and partnerships in four areas:
- Cooperation on ‘Post Aid’ and Advanced Middle Income Countries
- Engaging Emerging Asian Donors
- Regional Programming
- Thinking and Working Politically in Practice.
