The Asterian Forum for Development and Cooperation, or the AFDC (Gaullican: Conseil de Développement Asterien, CDA) is an intergovernmental regional organization comprising of nine member states, situated in Asteria Superior and Asteria Inferior.

Established with the Treaty of Pasau in 1987, the Asterian Forum for Development and Cooperation was designed to be a trade bloc, where barriers to trade were reduced within its member states, with the idea that it would help foster cooperation among its members. Since its inception, the AFDC has expanded in scope, as although it remains primarily an economic organisation, the increased ties between member states has led to the growth of political institutions within the Asterian Forum for Development and Cooperation.
