Contributions of Australian Volunteers International Volunteers in the Middle East

Since 2001, Australian Volunteers International (AVI) has managed the Australian Government-funded volunteer program in the Middle East, providing support to partner organisations across Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. The program’s transition from Australia-based to in-country management in early 2012 presented an opportunity to review the 10-year program. The review analysed the contributions of Australian volunteers to developing the capacity of AVI’s partner organisations in the Middle East and sought to understand how the process of capacity development could be made more effective. This brief summarises the main findings and recommendations from the review.
