The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) and its agencies actively seek to co-operate with like-minded institutions in the design, implementation and funding of innovative development projects. They therefore need and welcome institutions and individuals throughout the world as partners to attain shared objectives. Individual AKDN agencies also work closely with local, state and national governments in each country in which they are active. The following institutional partners contributed financially or materially to the programmes of individual AKDN agencies. Many more contributed practically and intellectually to their work. All of these contributions are gratefully acknowledged.
