The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is the Australian government agency responsible for the design and delivery of the Australian aid program.
In August 2023, Australia’s International Development Policy was published, an update on the previous 2014 policy. This new policy is underpinned by a new performance and delivery framework, and a summary of the international development policy is also available. The new policy emphasizes a stronger focus on climate, and inclusive development, and reiterates Australia’s programmatic focus on the Indo-Pacific.
