Dairy Asia is committed to being a non-hierarchical, consensus based multi-stakeholder platform. Semi-autonomous technical working groups lead the technical work under the platform. A steering committee comprising representatives from national focal points, knowledge partners, sponsors and technical working group members provides strategic guidance and oversight. The secretariat coordinates the organizational level decision-making and provides the liaison function between various arms of the platform. This structure allows for a semi-autonomous working building on the strengths of all partners and creating opportunities towards more coordinated action in pursuit of our joint vision.
