Decrease in UK’s expenditures on development

The UK’s Gross Public Expenditure on Development (GPEX) amounted to £8,950m (11,04m Euro) in 2011/12, registering a decrease of 0,6% as compared to last year, according to the annual report released by the Department for International Development of the UK government.
The Department for International Development (DFID) aid programme accounted for £7,682m (9,474m Euro) or 87% of this expenditure. DFID’s bilateral assistance to sub-Saharan Africa rose to £1,8 m (2,22m Euro) in 2011/12, a 3% from the previous year, while the bilateral assistance to the Pacific registered an increase of 15% compared to 2010-2011 to £3.0m (3,7m Euro). The DFID bilateral assistance was provided to 68 countries, out of which Ethiopia, India and Bangladesh received the largest amounts of aid.
The report on the deployment of official financial resources to support international development shows how this funding is broken down by destination country or organisation, type of assistance and purpose.
It provides information on the UK’s Gross Public Expenditure on Development (GPEX) which includes both the Department for International Development (DFID) programme and the element of official UK aid that is delivered through other UK Government Departments. This report also provides information on the level of Official Development Assistance (ODA) provided by the UK.
