Making Infrastructure Work for Gender Equality
In late 2018, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a new initiative called the Australian Infrastructure Financing Facility for the Pacific (AIFFP). The AIFFP is part of Australia’s “Pacific Step Up”, a series of initiatives designed to increase Australia’s presence and cooperation in the Pacific region.
The AIFFP represents a significant shift in the way Australia finances development. With its focus on infrastructure, it also represents a re-balancing of the priorities of Australia’s development assistance program towards this sector.
