In conducting this review, the Australian Multilateral Assessment looked at the performance of 42 multilateral organisations funded by AusAID. According to AusAID Director-General, Peter Baxter, "when we work with the WFP we can be sure Australian funds are saving lives and fighting the impact of hunger and under-nutrition. ... In the past two years alone, Australian funds helped to feed more than 5.5 million people who would otherwise have gone hungry."
In 2011, Australia provided more than $140 million to the WFP's global operations.
