Forging Dynamic Partnership to Change the World


AusAID: Australian Agency for International Development

Australian aid has helped Australia’s neighbors and countries further abroad to develop, and our aid program continues to grow. In 2010–11, Australia will provide $4.3 billion worth of official development assistance. The Australian Government continues to increase aid in line with other donor countries. By 2015-16 the annual aid figure is estimated to reach around $8–9 billion (0.5 per cent of Gross National Income).

In September 2000, member states of the United Nations, including Australia, agreed to work towards eliminating global poverty and hunger, to improve health, gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability and to create a global partnership for development. This commitment produced the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).  Australian aid helps developing countries to achieve these goals.
