Mr Pyne: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) Australian aid is categorised against the criteria of the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD DAC). While DAC members are required to indicate the main sector an aid investment is designed to support, investments are not disaggregated by age. It is therefore not possible to provide a list of current Australian aid programs that target or include adolescent girls as the primary beneficiaries.
