Only a very small proportion of Ministry of Defence expenditure counts as Official Development Assistance. The majority of this is spent on certain categories of Defence education. We have recently implemented measures to improve the representation of women on these educational programmes, in support of the UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.
