DFID spends sixty percent of its country specific bilateral ODA in the least developed countries and continues to meet its commitment to allocate at least fifty percent of its budget to fragile states as set out in the 2015 Aid Strategy. This does not preclude DFID from increasing the proportion of its spend to these states due to unforeseen disasters or events in any given period.
