Our planned aid expenditure

The Government sets the overall budget for the New Zealand Aid Programme on a three-yearly basis, known as a triennium.

New Zealand’s International Development Cooperation is funded by an appropriation within Vote Foreign Affairs and Trade.  MFAT organises the funding into five allocation groups, and within this into 23 ‘four-year plans’. 

Allocations for each four-year plan are managed over a three-year period. Over this period, there is flexibility to move funds into and between four-year plans in order to respond to rapidly changing contexts (for example the onset of COVID-19).

This table sets out the approved funding for the period 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2024 by allocation group and four-year plan. MFAT will update this page with any changes over the course of the three year period.
