The Development Policy Centre undertakes research and promotes practical initiatives to improve the effectiveness of Australian aid, to promote development in PNG and the Pacific and contribute to better global development policy.
We are an independent and innovative voice.
Since the Devpolicy Blog was established in September 2010, it has grown to become Australia’s leading site for aid and development analysis, a key source of thinking on Papua New Guinea and the Pacific islands region, and a platform for other researchers, practitioners and development actors to share their views, evidence and experiences.
If you value the Devpolicy Blog and its role in fostering robust discussion on aid and development in Australia, the Pacific, and beyond, please consider making a financial contribution to help us continue our mission to publish quality analysis of aid and development issues each weekday.
You can support the Devpolicy Blog, and the wider activities of the Development Policy Centre, through ANU Philanthropy. Donations to the Development Policy Centre Endowment over $2 are tax deductible. Payment can be made online with Visa or Mastercard, and other payment options are also available.

- Learn more about our Aid Profiles and associated Mitchell Humanitarian Award — a project which aims to showcase international development contributions with an Australian flavour — here.
