UK ODA funding overview

The UK government is committed to spending 0.7% of its Gross National Income on ODA. In 2015, it adopted a greater cross-governmental approach to ODA, involving a greater number of players in funding for international development research. By providing a comprehensive picture of the UK’s ODA research funding, we are able to analyse investments, highlight strategic gaps and opportunities, and identify future international development and research trends to our members and stakeholders.

This is work is currently underway and we will update this page in due course.
