Who receives Australian aid and Why?
Development Policy Centre Discussion Papers from Development Policy Centre, Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University
The bulk of official development assistance (ODA) from Australia is provided to Asia and Oceania. Indonesia and Papua New Guinea together account for nearly a quarter of the total. Physical proximity to Canberra and large receipts of bilateral aid from the United States is a significant determinant of who receives this aid. The level of poverty is (statistically) a significant determinant of aid allocated by Canberra only after recipients have been chosen.
