UK ODA in 2020 and 2021: What do we know?
The past year has seen big changes to the UK’s planned aid budget, both through cuts linked to GNI fluctuations and the decision to reduce ODA to 0.5%. Despite the magnitude of these changes, very little information has been shared on where and how cuts are being made. In this event we will be joined by Carolyn Culey and Bill Anderson from Development Initiatives, who will present their analysis of published IATI data and what this tells us about the UK’s aid spend in 2020 and 2021, and by Nasim Salad from The ONE Campaign, who will present their analysis of the possible spend scenarios for UK ODA in 2021.
The presentations will be followed by a Q&A and a discussion on using data to support advocacy work on the aid cuts.
This event will take place on Thursday 18 March from 10:00 - 11:30 UK time.
