“The United Kingdom’s aid chief Penny Mordaunt has reassured civil society groups that the Department for International Development will not be ‘hoovered up’ by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, and that there are no plans to scrap the 0.7 percent aid-spending target. Following recent concern in the aid community about the future of DFID, Mordaunt finally opened up about her plans for the department during her opening speech at the Bond conference in the U.K.’s capital city, London, on Monday…” (Edwards, 3/19).
