The International Development Committee is examining DFID's Annual Report, especially on the following areas:

  • Trends in DFID expenditure – including the level of spending on:
  • multilaterals,
  • humanitarian assistance: is it proportionate; is the UK undertaking  too great a share compared to other OECD countries?
  • bilateral country programmes, in particular the desirability of reductions in spending on country programmes in Africa; the process for determining country budgets and whether too much is allocated to resource-rich and middle income countries; and DFID’s dialogue and partnership with and ability to influence developing country Governments
  • centrally managed programmes: whether increased spending in this area is desirable
