Grow Asia 


Grow Asia has a unique governance structure that embodies its multi-stakeholder community.


Its multi-stakeholder Steering Committee guides and oversees Grow Asia’s strategy and operations. The Grow Asia Business Council, comprised of global and regional companies, provides strategic insight and drives action on the ground, while the Grow Asia Civil Society Council advises on ensuring positive societal and environmental outcomes.

Grow Asia is supported by the strong commitment and leadership of the 10 ASEAN governments and the ASEAN Secretariat, and through generous funding from the Government of Australia and the Government of Canada. The partnership is coordinated by the Grow Asia Secretariat based in Singapore.

The multi-stakeholder Steering Committee acts as the main oversight body for the Grow Asia Secretariat. The Committee's diverse representation, including a farmer representative, is invaluable in defining Grow Asia's plans and addressing differing views and approaches while identifying priority areas that help Grow Asia meet its ambitious targets.
