This aid is concentrated on reducing poverty and inequality in line with the international community's commitment to help achieve the millennium development goals (MDGs) by 2015. Specific focus areas included helping the poorest and most excluded participate in and benefit from economic growth and good governance.
The Government have commissioned a review of the DfID Bilateral Aid Programme to ensure that we target UK aid where it is needed most and will make the most significant impact on poverty reduction. The review will consider which countries should receive British aid, how much they should receive and which countries should stop receiving British aid. Any savings generated will be redirected to more effective programmes in other poor countries.
