ICAI's review on the changing nature of UK aid in Ghana

Inquiry

The Sub-Committee on the work of the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) is launching an inquiry to consider ICAI’s first country portfolio review, The changing nature of UK aid in Ghana.

Ghana became a lower-middle income country in 2011. Its economy is changing and, as a result, so is the nature of the UK’s aid portfolio. Despite the progress achieved, some development challenges remain.

The UK committed approximately £2.8 billion in bilateral aid to Ghana between 1998 and 2017. Lately, the UK has responded to Ghana’s desire to move beyond aid by reorienting the UK’s aid portfolio towards helping Ghana overcome its economic and governance challenges, and towards mobilising the resources to help Ghana finance its own development.
