Advancing the interests of Australia and Australians internationally
The following describes Australia's International Development Assistance Program budget for 2012–13.
On 17 December 2012, the Australian Government announced that it will reprioritise up to $375.1 million in aid this financial year as support for asylum seekers waiting to have their claims heard in Australia.
On 22 February 2013, our website was updated to provide details of changes to our programs as a result of the reprioritisation.
