The ASEAN Foundation funds human resources development (capacity building) in program areas that include environment and social development, e.g., agriculture, fisheries, and disaster management. Most of the Foundation's projects are implemented by relatively experienced research and training institutes in the ASEAN region, and by ASEAN's network organizations (for agriculture, fisheries, life sciences, research, etc.). Additionally, a few grants are made to organizations outside of ASEAN (e.g., Japan and Europe), but which actively work with partners across the region.
