As the Prime Minister said, in addition to the £3.3 billion of UK support to Afghanistan since 2002, we will provide over £100 million of development assistance to Afghanistan this year. This includes the programmes currently listed on DevTracker and others where we are still working out detailed allocations in accordance with the priorities outlined by the Foreign Secretary.

Final and audited spend for 2020/21 will be published in our annual report later this year.
