Solomon Islands – Australia Partnership for Development: Independent Performance Assessment Panel Assessment for 2012

Summary

This document is the 2012 Independent Performance Assessment Panel Assessment for the Solomon Islands – Australia Partnership for Development.

Description

An assessment of progress on the Solomon Islands – Australia Partnership for Development was carried out by an independent assessment panel in March 2013, and reports on progress made in 2012.

The assessment is based on the self-reported Quality at Implementation narratives of AusAID-funded programs and initiatives, on interviews with Solomon Islands Government (SIG) and AusAID teams and senior managers, through discussions with other development partners in Honiara, and on supplementary data provided to the Panel. A short field visit to Isabel Province allowed the Panel to see how services supported by the Partnership are being delivered on the ground.

During 2012, nearly A$49 million was provided under Australia's bilateral program in support of the priorities established under the Partnership for Development. Almost half of this total was allocated to two key sectors: infrastructure and health. Education, support to economic and fiscal reforms and livelihoods continued to constitute the other Partnership priority areas. A further $9.5million of bilateral aid funding was allocated to scholarships, emergency and humanitarian responses, and to civil society programs.
