Indonesia’s priority areas for South-South cooperation within ASEAN

    Douglas Broderick (UNDP Indonesia): Regional leadership and South-South cooperation

    Several new middle-income countries like Brazil or India are already becoming emerging donors, so how is Indonesia following that trend and becoming a regional development leader within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations?

    In this video interview, Devex Senior Reporter Michael Igoe asked Douglas Broderick, U.N. Development Program resident coordinative in Indonesia, who pointed out the country has done an “excellent job” on sharing lessons learned from dealing with international conflict with fellow ASEAN member states like Myanmar or the Philippines.

    Other areas Indonesia is increasingly stepping up its South-South development cooperation with other nations are policing and disaster preparedness.
