ADB-Asian Think Tank Network eNewsletter Issue 1
In consultation with think tanks in the region, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a regional technical assistance project in May 2013 to support networking among think tanks in the region for sharing knowledge on development experiences and policy lessons under the ADB-Asian Think Tank Network. The technical assistance intends to provide initial support for knowledge sharing among think tanks. It is hoped that this will lead to strong interest among participating think tanks in self-sustaining the knowledge sharing network.
The annual ADB-Asian Think Tank Development Forum is the project's flagship knowledge sharing event.
This first issue of the ADB-Asian Think Tank Network e-newsletter describes how the Asian Think Tank Network started and highlights the discussion of the first forum held in Beijing on 30-31 October 2013, and gives a list of participating think tanks to the initiative.
