Summary of publication
In 2014-15 Australia’s total official development assistance budget for the Pacific Regional Program was $199.8 million.
The Pacific Regional program complements the work of bilateral programs with a focus on areas where a regional approach is most effective. The four objectives for the Regional Program are: supporting increased economic growth; the development of more efficient regional institutions; healthy and resilient communities; and the empowerment of women and girls in the Pacific. These four objectives are complementary and mutually reinforcing.
This report evaluates the achievements and development results of Australia’s Pacific Regional aid program against these four objectives over the period of July 2014 to June 2015.
