Summary of publication
This report summarises progress for the aid program to Nepal in 2014-15 against its two objectives along with details of Australia’s response to the devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015.
In 2014-15 the aid program in Nepal consolidated and focused in areas where Australia is best placed to a make a difference, specifically through supporting micro-enterprise and education. This report finds the Australian aid program is relevant to Nepal’s development priorities, and is aligned with Australia’s aid policy. The humanitarian response package was shaped to ensure it was directed to areas of greatest need, and our earthquake early recovery funding was aligned with the existing bilateral program to take advantage of established relationships, experience and achievements.
