Last year saw the biggest cuts ever to the Australian aid program. This year more than $200 million of aid is slated to be cut. How will the axe fall? How will the government manage the growing pressures on the aid program, whether from the humanitarian budget, PNG or climate change? And will the government use the budget to show it is serious about transparency? How much information will be released?
Join us at the Development Policy Centre the morning after the 2016-17 budget for the fourth annual aid budget breakfast to learn what the 2016-17 budget means for the future of Australian aid.
Speakers include Stephen Howes, Director of Development Policy Centre, Crawford School, ANU; Jacqui De Lacy, General Manager of Global Strategy, Abt JTA and Anthony Swan Research Fellow, Development Policy Centre, Crawford School, ANU.
