This policy brief has been prepared by CAFOD, the RSPB, Christian Aid, WWF-UK and Oxfam GB, based on the 'UK ODA and sustainable development' report by IIED (International Institute for Environment and Development).

The brief explores how the UK’s approach to overseas development assistance (ODA) has evolved, particularly over the last five years. It presents recommendations to the UK government based on a set of key principles of sustainable development used to assess a selection of UK-funded sustainable-development-oriented programmes.
