Hello NZADDs readers,
The OECD DAC’s peer review of the New Zealand Government Aid Programme was released today and Jo Spratt of NZADDs has written a commentary on the review for the Devpolicy Blog. Devpolicy are having some blog problems at present. So I have reposted Jo’s post over the fold here.
Welcome to a new year and a new NZADDs update,
It’s been a while since we emailed and, in addition to the usual development news, this email will update you on NZADDs’ future and a little of what we’ve been up to.
Before we get to that though, on the other side of the Tasman, the Abbot Government has signalled it will dramatically cut Australian aid, starting with a cut of approximately 20 percent next financial year.
