About the project

The Lowy Institute has been commissioned by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to implement the activity Mapping Foreign Assistance in the Pacific. This project will collect, collate, and analyze data on foreign assistance provided to the Pacific Islands region, and display this data in a visually appealing, user-friendly, intuitive online format. This project builds off of the proof of concept established by the Chinese Aid in the Pacific map launched by the Institute in 2015.

The data will be presented in map form, at a regional, country, and project level. It will cover the 14 Pacific Islands Forum member countries. It will include all foreign assistance provided by more than 30 countries and agencies/funds, both traditional and non-traditional, for the period 2011 to 2017 inclusive.
