Who We Are

We are a community of development professionals, government officials, civil society organizations, researchers, students and others interested in international development. We are supported by the Asian Development Bank but views expressed are those of the authors.

What We Do

We provide a format for sharing solutions to development problems – from small detailed fixes on a specific type of project to big picture strategies that address broad societal issues. We look for solutions and we share them.

We do not promote projects, organizations or individuals.

How We Work

Development Asia provides knowledge solutions in six primary formats:

  • Case studies examine the outcomes, lessons, innovations and best practices of a specific project.
  • Policy Briefs discuss important issues and offer recommendations for policymakers and decision makers.
  • Explainers provide simple, clear descriptions of complex issues or concepts.
  • Insights give experts a chance to discuss and explain complex issues regarding international development.
  • Summaries distill lengthy reports to their core messages.
  • Online courses teach skills and explain concepts associated with international development.
