First up, MFAT is currently inviting public submissions to inform their updated policy on New Zealand’s International Cooperation for Sustainable Development. This is your chance to have your say. Submissions close 30 September, 2018. You can find out more about the process and make your submission from this link.
Also, in mid-July the OECD DAC released the findings of their mid-term review of the New Zealand Government Aid Programme. You can read this as a PDF here. As is always the case with OECD reviews, it’s a pretty upbeat document, but it also contains a range of insightful positive and negative findings — a very useful resource.
