Summary of publication
In 2015-16 Australia’s total official development assistance budget to Nepal was $33.7 million.
This report summarises progress of Australia’s aid program to Nepal against three objectives focused on education, enterprise and job creation as well as specific targeted post-earthquake recovery investments. Australia’s assistance continued to support poverty reduction in line with the Government of Nepal’s development agenda as outlined in its thirteenth three year plan (2013-16). As a modest donor, Australia’s value-add is through our technical assistance, contribution to policy decisions and the flexibility our grant funding provides.
