Annual report: New results show UK aid is changing lives
New figures tracking the success of UK aid around the globe show how British support is transforming the lives of the world's poorest people.
The latest numbers are set out in the Department for International Development's Annual Report 2011-12, published by the British Government ministry today.
The progress report reveals the Government is on track to deliver the results it set out over a year ago, in a major review of how British aid is targeted.
This paper provides an overview of why and how DFID is aiming to enable poor people to exercise greater choice and control over their own development and to hold decision-makers to account.
Despite some progress towards the MDGs, significant poverty persists globally. In many places gaps are widening between the rich and the poor and there is significant inequality of opportunity. This is in part because current development measures attempt to tackle the symptoms of poverty but do not always address its causes. Poverty may persist where:
Introduction to the profiles
Across the developing world, girls and women continue to bear a disproportionate burden of poverty. Yet we know it is possible to take effective practical action that enables girls and women to fulfill their potential. And we know that the benefits of investing in girls and women are transformational - for their own lives and for their families, communities, societies and economies. Empowering girls and women has multiplier effects for economic growth and achieving all of the MDGs.
If we reach girls, in particular, early enough in their lives, we can transform their life chances.
This review has focused the UK's bilateral aid programme in fewer countries so we can target our support where it will make the biggest difference and where the need is greatest.
A new fight against malnutrition is being launched by The Department for International Development (DFID), focussing on the six countries that are home to half of all undernourished children under five in the world.
The new strategy will address the devastating impact that malnutrition has on life-expectancy, health and long-term productivity, and will have a direct impact on the life chances of 12 million children by 2015.
This comes ahead of a major international conference, organised by DFID, where new proposals will be laid out to get the Millennium Development Goals back on …

Mr Alexander will be speaking to a World Food Programme (WFP) conference in Rome, where he will outline steps to tackle the global hunger …
Every year the deaths of more than three million children under five - equivalent to the total UK population of that age - are attributable to undernutrition and yet the problem is being given low international priority.
This is according to a new report published by the Department for International Development which will form the evidence base for their forthcoming Nutrition Strategy.
80 percent of the world's undernourished children under 5 years of age live in just 20 countries .
