The European Union and it’s Member States continue to be the world’s leading provider of Official Development Assistance (ODA), with an overall amount of €75.7 billion in 2017. The EU and its Members States have been consistently in the lead of global efforts on development financing. Since 2015, the year of the adoption of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, EU collective aid has grown by €7.8 billion, while the ODA/GNI ratio grew by 6%, underpinning the EU’s and Member States’ sustained efforts to promote prosperity, peace, and sustainable development worldwide. The European Union is also based on a strong commitment to promoting and protecting human rights, democracy and the rule of law worldwide. Human rights are at the very heart of EU relations with other countries and regions. Promoting them can help prevent and resolve conflicts and alleviate poverty.
The European Union is pleased to contribute to this conference. The EU’s Ambassador to Australia – Dr Michael Pulch – will deliver a short address during the pre-dinner drinks.

Global development and non-profit organisations are operating in an increasingly complex environment and therefore are required to build diverse teams of world class leaders from a range of professional backgrounds and cultural perspectives. Perrett Laver identifies, engages, and secures those leaders.
Working globally with humanitarian and development NGOs, domestic voluntary and community organisations, human rights organisations, microfinance institutions, philanthropic foundations, and social enterprises, we focus heavily on attracting the very best leaders globally and, where appropriate, talent from outside the sector.
Since the establishment of the firm 14 years ago in London, Perrett Laver has conducted searches for some of the most senior roles within the sector (Trustees, CEOs, Functional Directors and Regional Directors) across the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, the Arab states and the Americas. We work with a diverse range of clients within the global development, humanitarian, human rights, environmental and sustainability sectors, and our clients are working within the advocacy, policy and sustainability spaces, INGOs, foundations, impact investing, and private sectors. We also work with Governments and at the intersection of academia, and our candidates are diverse in all aspects including their global location and the sectors in which they work.
Whilst the largest proportion of our work in Australia since our commencement here in 2012 has been within the Higher Education sector, we are now actively building our Global Non-Profits practice in Australia. We look forward to meeting you during the 2018 ACFID conference in Sydney, and to an opportunity to discuss how we can support you and your organisation in the recruitment of your leaders of tomorrow.

Campaign for Australian Aid
The Campaign for Australian Aid is a community of people determined to build a fair, sustainable, and peaceful world
We are a community of Australian aid and development organisations, churches, community groups, businesses and citizens who speak out for a world where all people, regardless of gender, race, or place of birth, can live a free, happy and healthy life. We support a global approach to action on poverty, inequality, and climate change and for an Australia that is a compassionate global citizen helping to create a fair, sustainable, and peaceful world.
Poverty (Social Justice): We are for a fair go for everyone regardless of place of birth, standing up for a world free from poverty. That’s why Australia should meet its global commitment of Australian aid of 0.7% of GNI.
Inequality (Economic Fairness): We are for economic and gender equality and for ensuring global corporates pay their fair share of tax and pay working people fair wages.
Climate Change (Environmental Sustainability): We are for clean air, water and land and for action against big polluters who are causing climate change and putting people, particularly people living in the poorest parts of the world, at risk.

PARTNERING FOR SUSTAINED IMPACT
Lasting solutions to the pressing development challenges of our time require all stakeholders to work in partnership. They cannot be achieved by one organization alone.
The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 17 — Partnerships for the Goals — reflects global recognition that strong partnerships are paramount to achieving the SDGs. The goals are interconnected so achieving them depends on tackling issues across more than one goal at a time. Oxfam Australia and Monash University aim to contribute to this by working together to tackle the root causes of poverty that affect people around the world.
TWO MISSIONS, ONE GOAL.
The Oxfam-Monash Partnership brings together one of the world’s top NGOs with the strength of Australia’s largest University to change people’s lives for the better.
At Oxfam Australia and Monash University, we have our individual missions, but we share a common purpose: to improve people’s lives. Since 2010, we’ve been working together to bring our different and complementary resources – world-leading academic research and development experience, to achieve greater development impact than would otherwise be possible.
The Partnership, a first of its kind, has a project track record and proven policy expertise that aligns with key targets set out in the SDGs. We do this through Participatory Action Research, Practitioner Development and Student Engagement.
Our research focuses on four key themes:
- Climate change and resilience;
- Gender equality;
- Migration and displacement; and
- Social accountability.
ACFID acknowledges the longstanding relationship with it’s partner, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
