Closing Date: June 13, 2014.

This is the second year of our pilot program, which supports projects whose focus are on reviewing current challenges and issues shared among Japan and other Asian countries, and proposing policy recommendations. The primary focus of the program is on selected countries in South-east Asia and Japan. The program pays special attention on drawing lessons from existing practices made by local communities, especially in terms of following points: i) how local communities address the challenges and find solutions; ii) the role of various stakeholders in those processes; and iii) policy frameworks and social settings to support such efforts.

Through this program, we try to build a new form of partnership among Japan and other Asian countries, based on empathy shared among peers who face common challenges, instead of conventional ones such as donor / recipient relationships.
