ACFID would like to thank DFAT for supporting the development of the first State of Sector Report. We would also like to
acknowledge all organisations that shared valuable datasets and case studies, including all the members of ACFID, whose
transparency allows us to engage with such a rich dataset.

ACFID also acknowledges the time and consideration provided by the Steering Committee and external Advisory Group
whose guidance was invaluable. Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to Terence Wood from the Development
Policy Centre, Australian National University, whose experience, and knowledge formed the backbone of the report.
