Australian Agency for International Development ActionAid - Australia

Mission

AusAID manages the Australian Government's official overseas aid program.
Its objective is to help developing countries reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development. It also provides policy advice and support to the Minister and Parliamentary Secretary on development issues, and plans and coordinates poverty reduction activities in partnership with developing countries.

Disaster Reduction Goal

Australia’s international DRR policy was released in 2009, with the overall policy goal of: reduced vulnerability and enhanced resilience of countries and communities to disasters.
There are four outcomes:
Disaster risk reduction is integrated into the Australian aid program;
The capacity of partner countries to reduce disaster risks is strengthened in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action;
Leadership and advocacy on disaster risk reduction are supported and enhanced;
Policies and programming for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation are coherent and coordinated.

The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
