Australia's performance as a humanitarian donor

posted by: Marybeth Redheffer, Policy Research Officer, DARA, 16 Mar 2011, 01:30 AM     category: 2. Perfomance & lessons

DARA has been measuring the performance of Australia’s humanitarian aid since 2007 through the Humanitarian Response Index. In 2010, Australia ranked 13th out of 23 OECD/DAC donors for applying Good Humanitarian Donorship principles in support of humanitarian action. Our analysis is based on extensive field interviews with humanitarian organizations supported by Australia and comprehensive statistical data.  In 2010, we found that Australia could improve the quality, effectiveness and impact of its humanitarian assistance by providing more flexible funding, allocating its aid to crises based on the level of needs and vulnerability, and improving its support and commitment to humanitarian accountability initiatives.  Australia should also consider increasing the proportion of funding allocated to NGOs, often the first-line providers of aid in case of emergencies. 

For a more detailed assessment of Australia’s performance, see http://daraint.org/humanitarian-response-index/humanitarian-response-index-2010/donor-assessments/Australia/# .

1 person noted ACFID’s submission to the peer review panel on behalf of Australian NGOs. Referenced NGO work within this submission included: around 60% of overseas humanitarian aid response in major emergencies being delivered through NGOs; and 35% of funds donated by the Australian community to Australian NGOs were directed to programs in Africa, representing over $280 million...
