Our Focus

ACFID’s work with its members, the Australian Government and the public focuses on driving positive change in three thematic areas:

  • Sustainable and inclusive development
  • Peace and human security
  • Strong and effective civil society

ACFID also plays a role in coordinating and communicating the collective emergency response efforts of its members.

ACFID holds an annual national conference, the ACFID National Conference, which brings together its members and other stakeholders for agenda setting, debate and learning.
