We work with and are supported by a number of organisations who have extensive and inclusive networks of business, academia, public sector and community leaders in Australia and the Pacific region. Their support is critical to our work and achievements.
Global Access Partners (GAP) is an independent non-profit institute for active policy that initiates strategic debate on the most pressing social, economic and structural issues facing Australia and the world today. It acts as a catalyst for policy implementation and new economic opportunities. ICDP was established by GAP in July 2017. Through its ‘Second Track’ process, GAP generates links in all sectors to increase stakeholder participation in implementation of government policy and promotes innovative, cross-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving. Supported by GAP’s alumni network of over 3,500 people in a broad range of fields, ICDP draws on the very best of Australian expertise and utilises the GAP model to expand and improve strategic discussions, policy processes and networks between Australia and the Pacific.
