Supporting Poverty Reduction in Asia 2012–2020: Opportunities and Challenges in CIDA’s Countries of Focus

Published: July 2, 2012

This policy brief, which is based on North-South Institute research recently commissioned by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, reviews the main trends forecast for Asia to 2020. Particular emphasis is placed on the outlook for sustainable development in the countries of focus of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) in the region: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pakistan, Vietnam, and other countries of Southeast Asia. Taking into account the priorities and main areas of work outlined by CIDA in each of these countries and the Southeast Asian subregion, we offer some key recommendations for future Canadian cooperation in the attainment of inclusive growth and poverty reduction there.
