AusAID’s Civil Society Engagement Framework sets out how Australia will work more effectively with civil society organisations (CSOs), in Australia and overseas, to increase the impact of aid for the world’s poorest people.
The Framework provides a clear direction for engaging with Australian and international civil society organisations such as CARE, ChildFund, the Global Poverty Project, UN Women, The Red Cross and World Vision Australia.

This Review analyzes some of the major events and trends related to natural disasters and humanitarian disaster response in 2011.
2011 was the most expensive year in terms of disaster losses in history, mostly because of a spate of disasters affecting developed countries. Globally, the ecnonomic cost of disasters in 2011 was $380 billion, of which $210 billion were the result of the earthquake and tsunmai in Japan. This was 72 percent higher than the losses in 2005, the second costliest year in history of disaster-related losses.
