The Organizers

Overview

Asian Development Bank's vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty.

Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Despite the region's many successes, it remains home to half of the world's extremely poor. ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration.

Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.



Overview

Asia Society for Social Improvement and Sustainable Transformation (ASSIST) is an international non-government organization with HQ in the Philippines and presence across South and Southeast Asia.

Established in 2003 with the simple aim of addressing sustainability challenges in the country, ASSIST has now evolved into a development organization with passion and purpose for progress and prosperity across the region.

Through capacity building and technical assistance, it seeks to promote sustainable practices to address social problems in the developing world and to empower its target groups to make them resilient to social, economic, and environmental challenges.
