Aid Talks Co-hosted by Aid/Watch Australia and the Reality of Aid – Asia Pacific (RoA-AP). Aid Talks aims to inform the public on how the Official Development Assistance (ODA), commonly known as aid provided by donor countries to developing nations and fragile states, is being utilized as ‘aid investment’ redirected to support private sector players and narrow security priorities over reducing inequality and poverty. In early 2020 Aid Talks started as a webinar series, in 2023 we have moved to the Aid Talks podcast.

PAST AID TALKS WEBINARS
In 2020 with so many of us being hit by the pandemic and having to work from home, our world started to become virtual as we faced various lockdowns. AidWatch Australia and RoA-AP will responded to this by starting the Aid Talks webinar series on a voluntary basis. Aid Talks webinars bring together field experts, professors, journalists, policymakers, CSOs, and activists from the ground to present their perspectives and evidence-based analyses on emerging topics.
Aid Talks will continue to produce short education ‘explainer’ videos on issues realting to Aid & Development in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
