Commitment to international development agenda begins to wane

According to a recent report by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), while the UK government and public have been known for their commitment to international development agenda, there are “clear signs” that point to the diminishing of the value placed on aid.
The findings, which are based on analysis of a series of deliberative workshops conducted around the UK,  suggest that the financial crisis and recent spending cuts have diminished public support for increasing or even maintaining current levels of UK aid spending. There are high levels of concern about waste and inefficiency in the distribution of aid, and it appears that this has been reinforced by some of the communications and fundraising images used by NGOs and governments. The repeated use of images that show people living in desperate need has created an impression that very little has changed over the past few decades.
