U.K. Cross-Government Aid Strategy Less Transparent, Poverty-Focused Than DFID Spending, Parliamentary Report Says

Devex: U.K. aid ‘brand’ at risk from cross-government funds, says IDC report
“Official development assistance spent outside the Department for International Development — which is set to rise to 30 percent within the next two years — is less transparent, less coherent, and less poverty-focused than aid spent by DFID, a new report from the parliamentary International Development Committee has found. The U.K.’s controversial cross-government aid strategy has seen a rising proportion of aid spent through departments other than DFID. … A lack of clarity within cross-government funds, in particular the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, risks ‘undermining faith in the U.K. aid brand,’ it said…” (Anders, 6/5).
