Allocating the United Kingdom's official development assistance

In a very challenging fiscal climate, the United Kingdom has met its commitment to provide 0.7% of its GNI as ODA by 2013, becoming the first major economy to reach this target. This commendable, well-planned achievement adds weight to the UK’s internationally recognised leading role. Maintaining this level of support until 2015-16, as planned, and even beyond will strengthen the UK’s legitimacy with respect to the global development agenda. While its ODA is primarily made up of grants, the UK increasingly uses various forms of financial instruments, a shift that reflects its new approach to fostering economic development. As recommended, the UK has improved its reporting on aid delivered by departments other than DFID.
