Corporate information and resources


Australia's new International Development Policy was released on 8 August 2023. DFAT webpages are being updated to reflect the priorities set out in the policy.

Australia is committed to high standards of transparency in reporting on the international development program.

This transparency promotes effective decision-making, public accountability and lasting change. We contribute to the open discussion of successes and failures among global partners as a critical step in achieving better outcomes.

Partnerships for Recovery: Australia’s COVID-19 Development Response includes a contemporary performance system which captures the objectives, results and impacts of Australia’s development program in the fight against COVID-19 and to progress the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

This planning and evaluation framework encompasses a whole-of-government approach to development, going beyond Official Development Assistance (ODA) to incorporate other elements of Australia’s policies and advocacy.

Our framework is divided into:

  • a three-tier system that reports on overall context, annual results and effectiveness,
  • country and regional plans that set out expected outcomes, key results and supporting investments, and
  • performance indicators that cover global programs and contributions to multilateral organisations.

Our data is clear and accessible

Australia’s development program information is made available and useful through the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) – the only open standard for aid and development finance data.

The raw data is available on the DFAT website and includes the total amount Australia provides to partner countries, the costs and aims of our investments, and how much we expect to contribute in future.
