The Department for International Development (DfID) has spent the following amounts in Sudan over the past three financial years. Approximately half of this funding is spent in Southern Sudan.

2007-08-£ 134, 666, 000;

2008-09-£ 105, 787, 000; and

2009-10-£145, 578, 000.

No UK funds go through government channels in either north or south Sudan. Our future support will be determined by the Bilateral Aid Review which is currently underway.
