Contents >> International Relations >> Key sectors of the aid program

The aid program provides assistance in five key sectors: governance; agriculture and rural development; health, education; and infrastructure. Activities in these sectors are underpinned by a commitment to environmental sustainability and gender equity.

Country and regional strategies, which are developed in consultation with partner governments, are the primary means through which sectorial priorities are translated into programs on the ground. Strategies take account of partner government priorities, Australia’s strengths, and the activities of other donors. Within the sectoral framework, development assistance programs in partner countries comprise a range of activities. These include the provision of Australian goods and services, training and academic student scholarships, food aid and support for non-government organisations (NGOs).

Details of the Australian aid flow are set out in table 3.4
