New Zealand Consulate-General Noumea, New Caledonia
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade manages the New Zealand Aid Programme and provides policy advice to the New Zealand Government on international development issues.
The New Zealand Aid Programme’s mission is to support sustainable development in developing countries in order to reduce poverty and to contribute to a more secure, equitable, and prosperous world. Over time this approach will allow developing countries to fund their own social services (for example health and education services) and further development activities.
New Zealand's development assistance is focused on the Pacific region, but also supports programmes in Asia, southern Africa and Latin America. New Zealand also works with multilateral agencies to address poverty, conflict, governance issues, and humanitarian crises worldwide.
New Zealand is committed to providing effective aid, as agreed by the international community. This includes support for the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the Accra Agenda for Action
