unstar this property answer text <p>DFID is promoting private sector development which contributes to state and peacebuilding in the Occupied Palestinian Territories by supporting fiscal sustainability, and reducing unemployment and poverty. DFID’s focus is on increasing growth and employment in key sectors, such as manufacturing, tourism, IT, and agriculture.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government published a new UK Aid Strategy <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-aid-tackling-global-challenges-in-the-national-interest" target="_blank">(UK aid: tackling global challenges in the national interest)</a> in November. The Strategy brings together the Government’s poverty reduction objectives with a commitment to tackle some of today’s biggest global challenges such as mass migration and global climate change. The Government will shape its Official Development Assistance (ODA) spending according to four strategic objectives, all of which support poverty reduction and are aligned with the UK national interest. The Government’s commitment to spend 0.7% of Gross National Income on international development, and strong UK leadership on the Global Goals, signals the UK’s intent to eradicate poverty in our lifetime.</p> more like this
