Phase 2 of 2018 Australian aid stakeholder survey launched

Now’s your chance to have your say about the state of Australian aid!

We’ve just launched the public phase of the 2018 Australian aid stakeholder survey – have your say on the state of the Australian government aid program through the online survey here, it should only take about 15 minutes (or read on for more information first).

The survey is a tool designed to obtain feedback on the effectiveness of the Australian aid program and provide suggestions for its improvement. Phase 1 of the survey was sent to over 200 senior executives from Australian NGOs and development contractors that are familiar with and involved in the delivery of Australian aid. Phase 2 is available online for all aid stakeholders (here) — and anyone knowledgeable about Australian aid — to complete.

The 2015 survey saw over 400 stakeholders provide feedback on the Australian aid program, giving us valuable insights into the aid program as a whole, as well as detailed information about perceptions of the program, its management by DFAT, and aid volumes.

Now, nearly five years later, has the aid program become more or less effective? Has the use of facilities made program management easier? Have we reversed the loss of expertise that was the aftermath of the AusAID-DFAT merger? These are all questions we explore in the survey, and we’re keen to hear from anyone engaged with the Australian aid program, whether as a recipient, partner, implementer, analyst or advocate. So click here to have your say.

The survey will close on 19 October 2018.
