As announced on 26 November, in order to maximise our strategic focus in the use of Official Development Assistance (ODA) next year, the Foreign Secretary will lead a short cross-government process to review, appraise and finalise all of the UK's ODA allocations. Decisions on support for children in conflict and climate change will be taken as part of this process and based on evidence of where UK ODA can make a difference.
