FDC was founded on the core belief that a multi-sector collaborative process is the best approach to achieving effective development. That means stakeholders from different sectors bringing together resources and capabilities to identify issues and opportunities and drive sustainable outcomes.
This approach is demonstrated by the substantial networks of practitioners and contributors that FDC has mobilised through its programs over the years. These networks, which include prominent stakeholders representing the public, private and community sectors, work with FDC to identify and promote development opportunities.
Examples include the Asia-based Banking with the Poor (BWTP) network and the Pacific-based Microfinance Pasifika Network (MFPN) as well as the Inclusive Growth and Development Caucus which FDC has formed to support its work with APEC.
