Our history

Based in Bangkok, Thailand its aim is to serve the international and local communities in human resource development and capacity building across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

ADCC has since then, successfully carried out numerous consultancy services and trained thousands of participants from governments, NGOs, development banks and UN agencies. ADCC is now one of the most well-acknowledged resource and training centers in the Asia-Pacific region.
