Summary of publication
This report summarises the progress of Australia’s aid program in Pakistan from July 2013 – June 2014.
This report finds that the Australian aid program has made strong progress in supporting the delivery of health and education services, particularly for women and girls, which provide the building blocks for Pakistan’s prosperity and stability. Investments in agriculture also had strong results, however greater attention is required to maximise the impact of agricultural productivity gains and expand pro-poor value chains. Investing resources in influencing Pakistan’s reform efforts enabled Australian’s aid program to be catalytic and influential in 2013-14. This policy engagement, which is critical to the success of our aid investments, will continue to be a strong focus of our work in 2014-15.
