Third Sector Podcast: UK aid and development funding

This week's episode looks at the recent cuts in funding for aid charities

In this episode, features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt discuss the situation for aid and development charities following the merger of the Department for International Development with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. 

In November the government announced its decision to cut the UK’s overseas aid budget from 0.7 per cent of gross national income to 0.5 per cent, slicing more than £4bn off the annual spend. 

Emily and Rebecca discuss where the cuts have been made, the need for clarity over what funding is still available and when the 0.7 per cent target might be restored - with helped from blogs from Bond and the Centre for Global Development.
