FDC has produced a range of books, articles, papers and other resources since it began in 1990. FDC aims to increase awareness of the opportunities and benefits of improved development assistance and cooperation, as well as mobilising broader Australian and overseas interest and participation in different forms of development assistance and cooperation. Publishing research and various articles encouraging discussion is just one of the ways that we promote dialogue and innovative development policy and practice across the Pacific and Asia.
