We treat equalities issues seriously, and have processes in place through Spending Reviews and FCDO business planning to ensure we meet our legal obligations.    As is routine, when developing advice for Ministers on 2021-22 spending, officials prepared an overarching Equalities Assessment which considered any impacts on women and girls, the most marginalised and vulnerable, people with disabilities, and people from other protected groups.
