idea 8: disability inclusive

posted by: ADG, 24 Mar 2011, 15:40 PM     category: 1. Structure of program

3 people suggested aid be directed to marginalized groups such as people with disabilities, of whom 400 million are living in Asia-Pacific. They suggested Australia continue its global leadership on disability inclusive development. Another suggested few major bilateral donors are active in this area, and the need to consider disability separately to health. 1 made recommendations from ADDC's submission to the review showing how disability inclusive development should be 'mainstreamed' across development, in particular across the MDGs...

Where should aid be directed?

posted by: ADG Team, 25 Jan 2011, 11:40 AM     category: 1. Structure of program
A significant portion of Australia's bilateral aid budget goes to Papua New Guinea and Indonesia (about 1/3 each). Australia has also committed to expanding engagement in Africa (ref AusAID budget FY10-11 bit.ly/fGUXmV). Where do you think aid should be focused? Barry suggests (comment on Doubling Aid) more attention for the Pacific. 'Just a suggestion' (comment on Doubling Aid) advocates the case for forgotten countries, or promising reformers. Stephen Grenville on Lowy's blog (http://bit.ly/i71M1O) suggests narrowing the geographic focus. The DevPolicy conference will look at Asian case studies (http://bit.ly/e4Zrog). But, what are your thoughts? We'd like to hear from you. Please post an idea or add a comment here.
