We published this review on Department of International Development’s (DFID) bilateral aid to Pakistan in October 2012, and awarded a green-amber score and made four recommendations.

This evaluation assesses whether DFID was achieving impact and value for money in Pakistan with its bilateral aid to health and humanitarian assistance (both longstanding areas of engagement) and to education (a relatively new sector for DFID Pakistan). The evaluation looks at the results achieved in a sample of programmes in these sectors with combined commitments of over £250 million.
