The Department for International Development (DFID) is focusing more than ever before on the results and value for money achieved through all our funding; the independent Commission on Aid Impact has been set up to monitor this. By including access to clean water and sanitation as a high-level indicator in DFID’s Business Plan, we will ensure that we monitor our progress very closely in this area, and remain accountable to the public for our results.

For more information on how DFID monitors its progress and results, please visit the DFID website at:
