Over the next 12 months, the United Kingdom (UK) is expected to contribute £679 million to the International Development Association (IDA).

The next IDA replenishment will start from July 2020 and donors are expected to announce their pledges this December. No decision has been taken on the UK contribution to that. House of Commons consent is required before any UK payments are made.
