The Aid and International Development Forum (AIDF) is the world leading forum specialising in disaster relief, resilience, mobile for development, food security and water security. We unite all stakeholders from government, UN agencies, intergovernmental agencies, NGOs and the private sector by providing a platform for independent debate and knowledge exchange, and for establishing long-lasting partnerships. For over 13 years, AIDF has been committed to improving aid and international development through research and high profile events held at the UN and government buildings in Asia, Africa, North America and Europe.
The Aid & International Development Forum is the world leading forum dedicated to uniting leading experts in water security, including international researchers, development agencies, NGO’s, UN and private sector organisations. AIDF summits are designed to create a mutual platform to facilitate and encourage sharing industry knowledge and experiences and contribute ideas on how to develop more effective policies to improve sustainable water management, economic opportunities and water related disaster relief in the Asia Pacific region.
AIDF strives to bring the escalating issues of food security, use of mobile technologies, water security and disaster relief to the forefront of agendas with the objectives of improving co-ordination across the regions and fostering cross-sector engagement between UN and government agencies, development banks, civil societies and the private sector.
AIDF brings together key humanitarian and development practitioners, influencers, investors, thought leaders, policy makers and entrepreneurs. Our events and reports are produced based on contributions from world leading experts including FAO, UNEP, UNESCAP, WFP, ADB, GAIN, IRRI, UN-OCHA, World Vision, UNOPS, USAID, Red Cross, World Bank, Aidmatrix, CIPS and many others.
