New aid landscape needs new approach from Australia

New aid landscape needs new approach from Australia

Updated 30 May 2012, 22:03 AEST

The effectiveness of aid to developing countries is coming under scrutiny with the inclusion of rapidly emerging economies as significant donors.

Traditional donors will have to find ways to cooperate with nations which might not share their development philosophies.

Its a challenge that will influence where the billions of dollars of aid and assistance goes and how its used.

A challenge that's important for Australia as many of the changes are occuring in its immediate neighbourhood.
