In this report Australia’s progress against Millennium Development Goal 8 is considered, which relates particularly to the responsibilities of richer countries. Goal 8, to build a partnership for development, commits developed countries such as Australia to support the developing countries in their efforts through more and better aid, fairer international trade and debt arrangements and other forms of assistance. In assessing Australia’s contribution to the MDGs the key areas of action agreed to by Australia in the Millennium Declaration are reviewed.
