The Department for International Development has not commissioned any formal assessment of the effects of the debt crisis on poverty reduction. The UK did support the national census in 2017. The full results will be published by November and will provide household level data on some key development indicators. The UK has been tracking various analyses of the economic situation led by others (including the World Bank and the IMF) to understand the implications of the macro-economic on poverty levels and has advocated strongly for the Government to protect pro-poor social sector spending.
