New approach paper: The UK’s humanitarian response to COVID-19
The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) has today published its planned approach for a forthcoming review on the UK’s humanitarian response to COVID-19.
The UK has played a substantial part in the global response as a major humanitarian donor. By January 2021, the UK had committed £1.3 billion to fight COVID-19 globally. Of this, 90% was channelled through multilateral institutions and global appeals.
ICAI’s review will assess the UK’s emergency support for populations in humanitarian need as a result of the pandemic and contribute towards lesson learning as the impacts of the pandemic continue.
