We will spend 0.5% of gross national oncome on official development assistance (ODA) in 2021. Any revisions to the level of allocated ODA spending in 2021-22 will be reflected at supplementary estimates in due course. The government remains committed to the International Development Act 2015 and intends to return to the 0.7% target when the fiscal situation allows.
