In line with international standards on ODA reporting DFID publishes a range of statistics on the benefiting country of our aid programmes, these are available from: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-international-development/about/statistics

DFID has always delivered some programmes which are located in one country and benefit another developing country or countries. These include programmes delivered by multilateral organisations, programmes that benefit an entire region and research into the problems of developing countries. It would be costly and complex to gather and aggregate the precise type of information requested, but a range of project level information is available from the Development Tracker: www.devtracker.co.uk .
