Britain’s commitments on international development

The UK government reaffirmed its commitment to spend 0.7% of the UK's national income on overseas aid by the end of 2013 – and to put this pledge into law. It also highlighted some of the key results UK aid is set to achieve by 2015, including: providing access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation and hygiene for up to 60 million people, supporting 11 million children in school – more than we educate in the UK, but at 2.5% of the cost, vaccinating more children against preventable diseases than the whole population of England, and supporting 13 countries to hold free and fair elections.
Over the past year, the UK Prime Minister, David Cameron has set out a new direction for development - emphasising a focus on growth and jobs alongside social and political progress, such as equality for women and effective public institutions. This year, the UK promises to use its G8 Presidency to drive forward the agenda.
UK is the second European  main donor to development aid, after Germany.
