In the last five years the UK has spent £832.5 million on the DFID programme in Bangladesh. This has contributed to significant development achievements. Since 2015 UK aid has helped 1.5 million children to gain a decent education and 900 thousand people to access clean water and better sanitation. It has also provided lifesaving humanitarian support to around 800,000 Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, particularly since the significant influx in August 2017.
Official budgets for financial year 20/21, approved by Ministers, will be published in DFID’s 2019/20 Annual Accounts and Report later this year.
