With the Spending Review 2021 settlement in place, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office will now begin to allocate its resources. An internal process of budget setting will begin shortly and conclude later this financial year. No decisions on specific programmes and geographical areas have yet been made. This internal process will be driven by the International Development Strategy which will ensure the UK's development assistance is aligned with the vision the Prime Minister set out in the Integrated Review.
