East and North-East Asian (ENEA) economies have come to play an increasingly important role in foreign aid regime over the past couple of decades. They are key providers of development assistance; moreover, their development experiences and strategies continue to shape the landscape of development cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. This report addresses: global and regional trends and opportunities on development cooperation; the ENEA experience in development cooperation; issues and challenges of development cooperation in the subregion; and enhancing development cooperation to achieve sustainable development. The varying experiences of the ENEA economies – most notably, their transition from being recipient to donors - could provide important lessons in development and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
