ACFOA Council refers to the 2001 Council Resolutions on Zimbabwe, Debt and HIV/AIDS and notes that:

  • Australian aid to Africa has, in real terms, shrunk to half what it was in 1995-96. For the 2002/3 year, the AusAID regional program allocation is $35 million. In contrast, the UK Government has just announced a 50% increase in its aid to Africa to almost A$3 billion, bringing its aid to 20 times Australia's per capita level. Australia is not on target to meet the Millennium Development Goals in relation to Africa.
