On Wednesday 23 November AP4D made a submission to inform the New International Development Policy.
The key points of AP4D’s submission are that:
- Australia’s New International Development Policy should link with other arms of statecraft, ideally as part of an integrated framework.
- The mechanisms and structures by which the ‘whole-of-government’ vision will be implemented should be clearly outlined.
- There are specific issues where development can link with other arms of statecraft.
The policy will be finalised in the first half of 2023.
