Australia Awards – Africa Baseline Perception Survey
Summary of publication
The Australia Awards – Africa program goal is for development of targeted African countries to be enhanced by Australia Awards Alumni contributions and positive relationships with Australia. Almost 6,000 Alumni from 51 African countries have benefited from the current and predecessor programs since 1960. The new phase of the Australia Awards – Africa program commenced in April 2016 to promote and support development and economic diplomacy objectives in Sub-Saharan Africa.
A mixed-methods baseline survey was conducted by Palladium and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) Africa Desk staff to understand key stakeholder perceptions and attitudes around the program's outcomes, and assess the validity of program logic assumptions.
