DFID’s Memorandum of Understanding with UNRWA requires it to apply transparency standards in line with the UK Aid Transparency Guarantee and the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) for all funding received from DFID. DFID officials last discussed this with UNRWA as part of our annual review cycle in June 2019 and assessed that UNRWA’s work was in line with the UK’s objective to make the international aid process transparent and accountable.
