Definition and administration of ODA inquiry


The International Development Committee has published the Report into the Definition and administration of Official Development Assistance (ODA) and found that aid delivered under the Prosperity Fund is insufficiently focused on the poorest. The Government has committed to spending increasing amounts of ODA outside the Department for International Development (DFID) claiming that this will engage other departments’ skills, expertise and networks. Regardless of whether ODA is delivered by DFID or other departments, Ministers must ensure it is delivered to a consistently high standard.
