Overseas Aid: Impact Assessments

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL11260, tabled on 8 December 2020

To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to produce and publish an impact assessment for the proposed reduction in the UK’s spending on official development assistance.

Answered on

22 December 2020

The Government is introducing a new strategic approach which will allow us to drive greater impact from our ODA spending around a set of strategic objectives - even if the budget is reduced. The Government will continue to robustly monitor the impact of our aid programmes through annual reviews of our programmes, independent evaluations and input from assessments made by Independent Commission on Aid Impact (ICAI) which are all routinely published.
