UK aid under pressure: a synthesis of ICAI findings from 2019 to 2023


Independent Commission for Aid Impact

This review draws together findings from ICAI reports published between August 2019 and August 2023, to look at how the aid programme has performed during a period with numerous internal and external challenges.

This synthesis of findings over the last four years of the third ICAI Commission, supplemented by additional interviews and documentary analysis, aims to provide an overview of the state of UK aid. It concludes by looking ahead, setting out key elements that will need to be addressed as part of rebuilding the aid programme in a complex and dynamic global context. It includes an annex summarising the findings of all reviews and follow-up.
