Summary of publication
Australia provided $43.8 million in humanitarian and development assistance to the Palestinian Territories (PTs) in 2017-18, in alignment with our long-standing support for the Middle East peace process. Australia’s assistance contributes to stability and inclusive economic growth in the PTs.
Australian aid equates to 0.4 per cent of the PTs Gross Domestic Product (GDP) so we align our support with the PA’s objectives and other donors funds to ensure impact. In doing so, we have in place rigorous system to ensure all activities in the PTs are comprehensively monitored and pro-actively managed with a zero tolerance approach to fraud or mismanagement.
This report summarises the performance of Australia’s aid program in the PTs from July 2017 to June 2018 against the objectives articulated in the PTs Aid Investment Plan (2015-2019).
