International Development

New Zealand’s contribution to development through multilateral agencies and its own bilateral programme is central to its standing in the international community. The New Zealand Aid Programme’s country-specific aid ranges from the Pacific to Afghanistan, while its contributions to regional programmes include Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and the Mekong. The Government’s total aid programme budget for the three years from 2012/13 is $550 million each year.

Effective international development means steering a course between the unique circumstances of each country and the high-level principles and approaches adopted by agencies based on their experience as to what works. MartinJenkins’ work for New Zealand and international aid agencies has included advising on how New Zealand’s own government institutions and experiences can be applied to developing countries, as well as advising on and evaluating international aid programmes.
