The Independent Commission for Aid Impact is an advisory non-departmental public body sponsored by the FCDO, but is operationally independent of government.

On the Integrated Review, the Government is engaging with experts beyond Whitehall and wider stakeholders with an interest in our nation's security and prosperity, and the global challenges the UK will face over the coming years.

The Government has issued a Call for Evidence to help inform the Integrated Review, which is open to all organisations with an interest and role in our nation's security and prosperity, and in tackling the global challenges the UK will face over the coming years.
