What to expect from DfID's aid reviews

It is internal review season at the U.K. Department for International Development. Several aid reviews are currently ongoing at Britain’s donor agency: the multilateral aid review, the bilateral aid review, the civil society review, the operational review, the research review, and a coordinating period called the “coherence phase.” The results of these will be released in the next few months, a DfID spokesperson confirmed to Devex. Among other things, the reviews will rebalance funding among countries and between DfID partners, and fill in some of the finer financial details for implementation of DfID’s new aid strategy. Among the top-line expectations, DfID officials said there will likely be an increase in bilateral funding, a decrease in multilateral funding, a new definition of “fragile state,” and clarification of the channeling and procurement of aid through other government departments, in keeping with the new U.K. cross-government aid strategy. Behind these shifts, DfID Permanent Secretary Mark Lowcock told members of the parliamentary International Development Committee in a hearing in January, is a push for adherence to aid objectives set out in the government’s manifesto, DfID’s own mandate and the new aid strategy, as well as a desire to “foster competition among implementers.”
