The International Development Committee hears from key figures from NGOs and research organisations on UK Official Development Assistance (ODA) administered by departments other than the Department for International Development (DFID).
Tuesday 16 January 2018, Wilson Room, Portcullis House
- Professor John Gaventa, Director of Research, Institute of Development Studies
- Tamsyn Barton, Chief Executive, Bond
- Rupert Simons, Chief Executive Officer, Publish What You Fund
- Dr Nilima Gulrajani, Senior Research Fellow, Overseas Development Institute
Purpose of the Session
With an increasing proportion of UK ODA administered outside of DFID, the Committee will explore the opportunities and challenges arising from this trend, including whether UK aid across Whitehall is sufficiently aligned towards reducing poverty and whether levels of transparency in these funds should be improved.
