Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP): Program Logic
Summary of publication
This document presents a Program Logic for the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). It will be used as a management tool during annual reflections, and reviewed in 2023. The Program Logic reflects the experience of both DFAT and ANGO stakeholders.
The Program Logic identifies the pathways along which the ANCP, as a Program, is expected to contribute to Australia’s efforts to sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction. It articulates the ‘value add’ of the ANCP to the Australian aid and development effort where ANCP extends and complements bilateral and regional programs. The Program Logic informs the assessment of Program performance, including a Performance Assessment Framework (PAF), terms of reference for monitoring and engagement visits and facilitates compliance with DFAT corporate reporting.
The ANCP in a unique global program that supports trusted Australian NGOs through flexible annual grants for effective development projects overseas. It is the key partnership between Australian based international development NGOs (ANGOs) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The ANCP enables over 59 accredited ANGOs to deliver development projects in over 50 countries. Projects are delivered across a range of sectors including education, health, water and sanitation, food security and civil society strengthening and where it may be difficult for bilateral and regional programs to be delivered. This allows Australia to build relationships in new areas and to be involved in long-term programming.
