The Pacific Aid Map
The Lowy Institute Pacific Aid Map is an analytical tool designed to enhance aid effectiveness in the Pacific by improving coordination, alignment and accountability of foreign aid through enhanced transparency of aid flows. The Pacific Aid Map team has collected data on more than 57,000 projects and activities across all the Pacific Islands from 67 donors from 2008 onwards. This raw data has been made freely available on an interactive platform, allowing users to drill down and manipulate the data in a variety of ways. Updates are made on a yearly basis.
The Pacific Aid Map, first launched in 2018, is funded through Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The project builds off of the proof of concept established by the Chinese Aid in the Pacific map launched by the Institute in 2015.
