Partnering for Impact AIESEC & Asian Development Bank Cooperation The kind of partners AIESEC should have and appreciate are the ones who create an inspiring impact, and the Asian Development Bank is one of them. Firstly started with AIESEC in the Philippines, the collaboration enhanced the similar values and goals we want to achieve - AIESEC being the leadership development organisation in the Asia-Pacific region, thus helping us create this amazing project. The partnership is built on 4 main pillars: participation, projects, policies and programming, youth and Sustainable Development Goals. In its specifics, the initiative is meant to impact the Mekong region, and hopefully in the future it will grow as a result of the positive results it generated. The reason this partnership is so relevant and valuable is itâ€™s utterly aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and it is very integrated with the UNEP (United Nations Environment Program). It is exciting to step forward with this partnership and get closer to both organisationsâ€™ missions. The Asian Development Bank has been very flexible, patient and open to the solutions AIESEC has presented, and we are deeply thankful for this, especially to Chris Morris, Ponce Ernest Samaniego and for sure, to Jessica Herrera from AIESEC in the Philippines. After all, it is only in togetherness that we can make the world a better place.
