“Corrupt governments continue to be the happy recipients of British aid. A 2014 report by the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) concluded that “DFID recognises corruption as a critical development challenge…(but) has not, however, developed an approach equal to the challenge, nor has it focussed its efforts on the poor. DFID’s willingness to engage in programming that explicitly tackles corruption generally is often constrained by political sensitivity in-country”. So even if DFID’s aid is going “where it is most needed”, it is not necessarily impacting those it is intended to assist.” Elizabeth Harrop, Consultant in International Human Rights Advocacy.
