Sustainable & Inclusive Development

ACFID promotes sustainable and inclusive approaches to development in recognition that:

  • Climate change threatens to roll back decades of development gains and force millions more people to live in poverty
  • Rising inequality within and between nations is causing social and economic problems and undermining efforts to eradicate poverty
  • Discrimination and injustice are major causes of poverty worldwide.

ACFID’s work on sustainable and inclusive development focuses on:

  • Australia’s uptake and action on the Sustainable Development Goal
  • Development policy and approaches that tackle climate change
  • Initiatives to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment
  • A strong and effective Australian aid program
  • Building public understanding of the importance of Australia’s aid and development efforts.
