OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Australia 2018

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Australia 2018

Australia has a strong voice on the global stage. It actively and consistently advocates for the interests of small island developing states and the Pacific region and on issues such as disaster risk reduction and gender equality. In line with this focus, the government has introduced a clear overarching policy vision and associated strategies and guidance for development co-operation. A robust performance framework reflects Australia’s strategic orientations, with value for money at the forefront. Among other issues, this review also looks at how the Australian government has managed the integration of aid within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the resulting opportunities and challenges.

Financing for development

Australia has made substantial cuts to its aid programme since the last peer review, officially abandoning its previous aid target. Australia’s aid volume compared to the size of its economy (ODA/GNI) is below the DAC average and on a downward trajectory, despite continued economic growth. Australia does not currently have a statement on the level of development aid it wants to reach.
