DFID is committed to working for a more efficient and effective global humanitarian system that helps save more lives and reduces suffering. All organisations spending UK taxpayers’ money, including DFID, must adhere to minimum requirements to demonstrate value for money and that we are safeguarding vulnerable people. In the rules governing how DFID spends UK Aid, some process requirements are streamlined for emergency humanitarian aid, to minimise delay in meeting urgent need.
