Development Policy Centre Discussion Paper No. 6

Abstract:     
The bulk of official development assistance (ODA) from Australia is provided to Asia and Oceania. Indonesia and Papua New Guinea together account for nearly a quarter of the total. Physical proximity to Canberra and large receipts of bilateral aid from the United States is a significant determinant of who receives this aid. The level of poverty is (statistically) a significant determinant of aid allocated by Canberra only after recipients have been chosen.
