DFID’s work with multilaterals: views from the UK’s Aid watchdog

Africa Research Institute

Thursday, 11 June 2015 from 12:00 to 14:00 (BST)

London, United Kingdom


Event details:


The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) is the public body responsible for scrutiny of UK aid. ICAI focuses on maximising the impact and effectiveness of the UK development budget. The Commission has issued 43 reports on subjects as diverse as education, climate change, fragile states and how DFID learns.

After four years in office, the commissioners will hand over to a new team in July. Chief Commissioner Graham Ward will share his reflections on the progress made and the challenges ahead for UK aid.

In their final report, ICAI examines DFID’s spending through multilateral donors. This accounted for £6.3bn in 2013/14, of which one third passed through the World Bank and European Commission. Previous ICAI reports have highlighted DFID’s limited oversight of EU aid, while commending the Department’s engagement with the World Bank.

Join us for the launch of ICAI’s report on DFID’s work with multilaterals and a discussion on lessons for achieving impact from ICAI’s first four years.

Speakers include:

  • Graham Ward CBE, Chief Commissioner, ICAI
  • Mark Foster, Commissioner, ICAI
  • Diana Good, Commissioner, ICAI
  • Romilly Greenhill, Team Leader, Development Finance, ODI
