About the conference
Australian National University, February 10-11, 2016
The Australasian Aid Conference returned on 10-11 February 2016, once again in partnership with The Asia Foundation. As in 2015, the aim of the 2016 Australasian Aid Conference is to bring together researchers from across Australia, the Pacific and Asia who are working on aid and international development policy to share insights, promote collaboration, and help develop the research community.
The Conference was held at Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU, Canberra on February 10 and 11, 2016. The Conference organisers were Professor Stephen Howes, Director of the Development Policy Centre at ANU; Dr Joel Negin, Associate Professor of International Public Health and Deputy Head of School at the University of Sydney School of Public Health; and Camilla Burkot, Research Officer at the Development Policy Centre.

About our partners
The Development Policy Centre
The Development Policy Centre (Devpolicy) is a think tank for aid and development serving Australia, the region, and the global development community. Devpolicy undertakes independent research and promotes practical initiatives to improve the effectiveness of Australian aid, to support the development of Papua New Guinea and the Pacific island region, and to contribute to better global development policy.
Devpolicy was established in September 2010 and is based at Crawford School of Public Policy in the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific at The Australian National University.
The Asia Foundation
The Asia Foundation is a non-profit international development organization committed to improving lives across a dynamic and developing Asia. Informed by six decades of experience and deep local expertise, our programs address critical issues affecting Asia in the 21st century—governance and law, economic development, women’s empowerment, environment, and regional cooperation. In addition, our Books for Asia and professional exchange programs are among the ways we encourage Asia’s continued development as a peaceful, just, and thriving region of the world.
Headquartered in San Francisco, The Asia Foundation works through a network of offices in 18 Asian countries and in Washington, DC. Working with public and private partners, the Foundation receives funding from a diverse group of bilateral and multilateral development agencies, foundations, corporations, and individuals. In 2012, we provided nearly $100 million in direct program support and distributed textbooks and other educational materials valued at over $30 million. Our development policy work brings together traditional and emerging Asian providers to share their perspectives and ideas about the changing dynamics of the Asia-Pacific region and international development cooperation.
