ODA review

Scope of our ODA review

As a result of the reduction in the budget for Official Development Assistance (ODA) UKRI is reviewing all ODA funding for financial year 2021 to 2022.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s ODA allocation to UKRI has significantly reduced its planned ODA expenditure for financial year 2021 to 2022, leading to a £125 million budget and a £120 million gap between allocations and commitments to grant holders.

It’s too early to detail the final impact of this review on individual grants funded by the Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF), Newton Fund and other ODA funds within our councils, including Innovate UK.
