Cross-posted from our sister site, Interpreting the aid review.

  • Interpreting the aid review will come to an end on Friday 15 April. We are always happy to accept last-minute pieces so get blogging before this unique and open avenue for discussion and debate on Australia's aid program disappears. 
  • This Guardian article urges aid agencies to begin listening to the people they're helping. How' By eliciting feedback (polling, social media) and then responding to it. (thanks Gobie) 
  • Cynthia Banham easily convinces me that the independent aid review should be putting women at the centre of Australia's aid strategy. (thanks Susan)
  • Andrew Leigh, Federal Member for Fraser, insists that foreign aid should be beyond politics as 'the policy is very clear'. He has an interesting blog on aid, corruption & the rise of China as an aid donor. (thanks @ShobazKandola)
  • The Lowy Institute has a new publication 'China in the Pacific: The new banker in town'.
  • The Global Dashboard, a fantastic blog on development and emerging global issues, looks at the future of international aid. It's also worth flicking over the comments.
  • Finally, an English subtitled trailer for a new documentary about Internet usage in Indonesia, by the NGO ICT Watch. (via @CSEASUCB)
