ABC International Development supports, connects and empowers people in the Asia-Pacific region, and globally, to have a voice in the decision-making processes that affect their lives. We foster the development of inclusive media, broadcasting capacities, research and education.
ABC International Development is the international development branch of Australia’s national public broadcaster, the Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). We are part of the ABC Engagement division and the Asia-Pacific media community.
Based in Melbourne, Australia, we partner with media, civil society and government agencies, supporting them to collectively engage on issues affecting their communities. We offer advice and expertise in the Asia-Pacific region and globally, with specialist staff in Australia, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and Myanmar.
Our work reflects the ABC’s strengths in public broadcasting, educational broadcasting, emergency broadcasting, rural/agricultural broadcasting and organisational management and our commitment to regional relationships, as an active member of Asia-Pacific and global media bodies.
