The Foundation for Development Cooperation aims to lead a distinctive contribution to building prosperity in the Asia Pacific region, leading ultimately to a reduction in the incidence of poverty and promotion of equitable growth.
FDC works to build prosperity and reduce disadvantage in developing countries in Asia and the Pacific by researching, piloting and promoting initiatives for development that are market-based and innovative. We facilitate collaboration across the public, private, NGO and academic sectors.
As an Australian foundation, FDC recognises the special role Australia can play in the region and seeks to improve the quality and quantity of support that the Australian community contributes toward building prosperity in Asia and the Pacific.
Our core areas of focus are inclusive finance, Pacific-Asia business partnerships and advocating for the Australian business community’s role in development in Asia Pacific.
