Welcome to NZADDs. We’re an independent group of academics and practitioners working together to promote dialogue and critical thinking about New Zealand’s role in international development.
Be it through aid, trade, immigration, or environmental policy (to name just a few), decisions made in New Zealand have real impacts on the the lives of people living in poverty in other countries. If we as a country want to help reduce global poverty and tackle global issues we need considered, well-intentioned policy and practice. NZADDs is committed to promoting this.

Hi and welcome to another NZADDs email update,
Did you know that New Zealand’s aid for primary education has collapsed since 2009. Why has one of our aid programme’s former strengths been so badly neglected? The answer follows. It’s based on a post of mine just published on the Devpolicy blog. Go and read the original blog, or you can read on under the fold here.
Come along on 12:30 to 1.30-pm on Tuesday 11 August 2020 for the release of Oxfam New Zealand’s report “Collective Resilience: New Zealand’s aid contribution in times of inequality and crises.”
This report uses OECD data to look at where the New Zealand Government Aid Programme is at, what it’s doing right, and what could be improved.
The event is taking place at: Government Buildings Lecture Theatre 1, Government Buildings, Pipitea Campus, Victoria University of Wellington. More info on the event can be found if you scroll right to the bottom of this webpage. This report is one contribution from Oxfam to the Big Hearts Connected World Campaign.
I don’t work for Oxfam but I helped with some of the analysis in the report and will be speaking at the launch. (Hence the notice here).
