Mutual Prosperity – Is this the future of UK and other bilateral aid?

This useful article by Will Worley of DEVEX to which I contributed sets out some of the pros and cons of mixing poverty reduction with other commercial and strategic objectives when it comes to the future of the UK Aid programme.

These issues are highly relevant to the challenges facing the new Foreign Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) as they seek to implement this new approach through the Prosperity Fund and other cross-Whitehall programmes where the aim is to use ODA funds in pursuit of British interests as well as to promote poverty reduction and sustainable development in the beneficiary countries.
