What is AIDN

The Australian International Development Network ( AIDN ) is a START UP organisation. It is a collaboration between private sector individuals, philanthropists, donors, corporates and government agencies looking to grant or invest funds to advance the social and environmental conditions of people and communities abroad.

Our Purpose

  • AIDN will provide a stronger and collective voice to increase the flow and quality of international giving and impact investing
  • AIDN will provide tools and resources to help Australians overcome some of the barriers to international giving and impact investing
  • AIDN will coordinate initiatives between private sector, corporate and government philanthropists and investors leading to greater international giving and impact investing
  • AIDN will promote standards and principles which support international philanthropic funding and impact investing to organisations that are effective, accountable and transparent.

Our declaration

AIDN BELIEVES:

  • A peak in global inequality greatly increases the opportunity for Australians to help support communities abroad
  • The SDGs and the PA Foundation maps provide an excellent framework and lens through which to frame philanthropy and impact investing objectives abroad
  • With greater networking and collaborations between private sector, corporate and government stakeholders, we can achieve more and better giving and impact investing abroad
  • Through sharing the right tools and information, barriers to international giving can be further lowered and the questions regarding its impact addressed
  • The corporate sector presents a significant opportunity to advance the scale and impact of international development through giving and investment
  • Growth in the impact investing market internationally is a significant opportunity to advance the scale and impact of international development
  • The shift in policy and strategy of the Australian Government presents and increased opportunity for the corporate and private sectors to partner and leverage their development efforts abroad
  • Agreed Standards and Principles should guide philanthropic funding and impact Investing abroad through to organisations that are effective , accountable and transparent

How will AIDN start

The AIDN has determined that sector research into the scale and scope of international philanthropy and impact investing by Australian is a first priority.

AIDN has commissioned a report that will pull together many disparate sources of information to provide a baseline for our core purpose and highlight the structures, stakeholders, flows trends and issues relating to international philanthropy and impact investing abroad.

The report will be available on the website.

It is our intention to update and build on the report annually.

Calling for business partnerships to help support COVID-19 recovery in the Indo-Pacific region

Are you an inclusive business? Do you have a commercial idea that could make a lasting social and environmental impact? Through the Business Partnerships Platform (BPP), the Australian Government is calling for inclusive business partnerships to help support COVID-19 recovery in the Indo-Pacific.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in widespread economic impact across the Indo-Pacific. People are losing their livelihoods and businesses have been disrupted.

The BPP’s COVID-19 Recovery Partnerships will help businesses to create livelihood opportunities, enhance gender equality and support green and resilient economic recovery.
