Donor Type:

The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) is an agency of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that assists developing countries to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development, in line with Australia’s national interests. AusAID is focused primarily on the Indo-Pacific region, and interventions and policies are aimed at two development outcomes: supporting private sector development and strengthening human development. Since 2013, AusAID has been guided by the government’s development policy, Australian Aid: Promoting Prosperity, Reducing Poverty, Enhancing Stability, and a new performance framework, Making Performance Count: Enhancing the Accountability and Effectiveness of Australian Aid.
