UK aid to Pakistan


Report & Government response published 

The International Development Committee launched an inquiry examining UK aid to Pakistan. Pakistan is the top bilateral recipient of UK aid and faces a range of complex development challenges. This inquiry explored the range of development interventions in the country, considering whether the UK’s aid spending is sufficiently targeted, effective and joined-up in its approach.

Following cuts to overall UK aid, the UK government has been advised in a report by the House of Commons International Development Committee to focus its spending in Pakistan on supporting marginalised groups, including women & girls and religious minorities.
