Asia

Over the past 25 years, IFES has worked in over a dozen countries in Asia. IFES programming in this region partners global expertise with local solutions through combining efforts with a variety of partner organizations.

Projects in Asia also showcase IFES’ excellence in inclusion and empowerment, with elements of youth, gender, persons with disabilities and underrepresented populations in portions of our work across the continent. Examples of this include leadership trainings throughout Cambodia for women on election administration and working with disabled persons’ organizations to integrate citizens with disabilities into national socialization campaigns in Indonesia.

Current projects in Asia also capture our expertise in election management, with IFES providing technical assistance to election commissions in the Philippines, Pakistan and Nepal. This expertise is applied to the political context of each nation to develop strategies for promoting sustainable democracy.
