UK aid to Africa falls sharply
Mark TranUK aid to Africa fell sharply last year following a drop in its multilateral contributions, according to ONE, the anti-poverty group.
In a report on the eve of the government's comprehensive spending review, ONE said UK official development assistance (ODA) to the continent fell by 7.4% to £3.41bn in 2012. Sub-Saharan Africa saw an even sharper drop of 9.8% to £3.07bn.
"The disproportionate drop in aid to Africa and sub-Saharan Africa is especially concerning given the UK's commitment to the region," said ONE, which attributed the fall to a decline in the UK's multilateral contributions of £412m, or 12%, last year.
