The Government sets the overall budget for the New Zealand Aid Programme on a three-yearly basis, known as a triennium. This allows a more predictable longer term outlook for our aid, which supports effective development practice.

The current Aid Programme triennium budget covers the three years from 2018-2021. The total budget across these three years is $2.2 billion. The table below shows the forecast expenditure of this budget by programme in each year.
