This report summarises progress in the Australia Government's aid program to the Caribbean from January 2012 to July 2013.
The Caribbean program continued to perform well overall and made a difference to partner organisations, including the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (5Cs), the Caribbean Regional Technical Assistance Centre and the Caribbean Disaster and Emergency Management Agency, as well as target beneficiaries such as Member State governments, regional and community organisations, and individuals. Australia’s aid program supported development progress by achieving results that reduce vulnerability to climate change, natural disasters and economic challenges.
During the reporting period the Australian Government undertook a program mid-term review to assess the program’s performance against relevance, efficiency and effectiveness. The Australian Government uses the APPR and program mid-term review findings and recommendations to assess options for strategic program development. In the next 12 months, the Caribbean program will consolidate by working through CARICOM (Caribbean Community)-endorsed regional partners in priority sectors and where Australian official development assistance can make the greatest difference. The consolidated program will concentrate on supporting sustainable economic development, delivered primarily through Australia’s partnership with the Caribbean Community.
