International aid in brief

Who, what, when, where, why and how

Bond

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

There are a lot of misconceptions about what UK aid is used for and where it goes. This accessible briefing for MPs covers essential information on the UK's international aid, explaining what it is, how it is spent and why it is so important in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.

This briefing can be shared with MPs, parliamentarians and policymakers as a short overview of aid. The report has six short sections:

  • Who does aid go to? 
  • What is aid?
  • Why must we spend aid?
  • When was and will aid be spent?
  • Where does aid go?
  • How is aid spent? 
Resource type: report
