ASIA FOUNDATION DEVELOPMENT FELLOWS
The past two weeks the new class of Asia Foundation Development Fellows: Emerging Leadership for Asia's Future have been deeply engaged in a leadership training program in Korea and Mongolia. The six women and six men are an accomplished group of changemakers – talented and inspirational young professionals working in government, the nonprofit sector, social enterprises, and media representing 11 Asian countries. In Seoul the Fellows were hosted by KDI School of Public Policy and Management, examined Korea's development experience and Asian Approaches to Development Cooperation, and met with the Friends of The Asia Foundation, Korea. In Mongolia they traveled to Terelj National Park to observe the extractive sector, and in Ulaanbaatar they studied The Asia Foundation's work on environmental challenges, economic development, and urban governance. Meet the new fellows. Read a piece in our blog profiling our Fellow from Afghanistan.
