Maintain our commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of GNI on development

Last updated 4 months ago

We will proudly maintain our commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of GNI on development...

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.53

Our verdict

  • This is a promise to continue investing 0.7% of Gross National Income (GNI) on Official Development Assistance (ODA).
  • There is a legal duty on government to maintain ODA at the O.7% level.
  • There has been no attempt to change the law on the level of ODA spending, so this policy is ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
