Australian aid: Signs of risk – the 2015 Australian Aid Stakeholder Survey

By Terence Wood, Camilla Burkot and Stephen Howes

February 2016

This report summarises the findings of the 2015 Australian aid stakeholder survey. The Development Policy Centre conducted its first ever Australian aid stakeholder survey prior to the 2013 elections. We assessed the state of Australian aid by gathering input from stakeholders — aid experts who have worked with the aid program regularly and who have first-hand experience of its performance. In the second half of 2015 we repeated the Australian aid stakeholder survey, using the same methods and asking similar questions, allowing analysis of the impact of the changes to the aid program between the two surveys.
