The Department for International Development (DFID) reports its total spend and spend by sector in the annual report that is published in June every year. This report is available online from our website:

DFID’s expenditure on disaster relief is reported under humanitarian assistance. DFID reports expenditure on clean water under water supply and sanitation as the majority of our programmes address these together, recognising that both are important for improving public health.
