Australian aid blog provokes surprising response

Updated 15 February 2012, 12:40 AEDT

Last month on Pacific Beat we heard from the Lowy Institute for International Policy.

.. which was urging people in the Pacific to contribute to a blog about Australia's aid program.

The blog was established in January with the aim of sparking a public debate ahead of the release of the independent review into the effectiveness of Australian aid.

That review is due out before the end of the month and so we thought we'd check in with Lowy to see what kind of response they've had.

Lowy research fellow Annmaree O'Keeffe, says she's been surprised by the issues that provoked the most discussion.

Presenter: Joanna McCarthy

Speaker: Annmaree O'Keeffe, research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy
