With so many pressing needs around the world, governments and non-profit organisations have a responsibility to use foreign aid dollars as efficiently and effectively as possible, to create the best outcomes for the greatest number of people.

Doing that requires finding ­innovative new approaches to stubborn challenges — an idea that lies at the heart of an ambitious initiative that we will be helping to guide, called the innovationXchange, that’s being launched today by the Australian government.

The $140 million program will introduce new ideas to Australia’s aid program in a number of ­strategic areas, such as good governance, gender equality, ­education, food security and ocean health — with a focus on Southeast Asia and the Pacific. The innovatio­nXchange will bring together leaders from governments, non-government organisations and business to lend their insights into how we can tackle big challenges more ­effectively.
