Australia and the world
Australia's aid program is dedicated to promoting prosperity, reducing poverty and enhancing stability through sustainable economic growth.
The focus of Australia's aid program is on its neighbourhood, where it can make the most difference. More than 90 per cent of bilateral and regional funding will be invested in the Indo-Pacific region.
Australia works with the private sector, and promotes private sector growth in partner countries, to create jobs, boost incomes and increase economic security.
The priority areas for Australia's aid investments are:
- Infrastructure, trade facilitation and international competitiveness
- Agriculture, fisheries and water
- Effective governance
- Education and health
- Building resilience
- Gender equality and empowering women and girls.
