Conference looks at improving aid effectiveness

Conference looks at improving aid effectiveness

Updated 28 November 2012, 11:40 AEDT

Top down aid development is the focus of a conference which begins today in Canberra.

Conference organisers say the impetus for the two day conference came from questions often asked by the media and public about how much actually gets to those who need it and are our taxpayers' funds being wasted on expensive consultants or corrupt third world regimes.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts

Emele Duituturaga, Executive Director of the Pacific Island Association of Non Governmental Organisations
