The creation of the new Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and resumption of the Integrated Review is a unique moment to define Global Britain's agenda. It is an opportunity to deliver a strategy that is in the national and international interest.
HALO’s latest brief, An Agenda for Global Britain, calls on the government to place conflict prevention and peace building, environment and resilience at the heart of its Global Britain strategy. It is time to match the UK’s leadership in sustainable development with a new focus on the drivers of poverty and conflict, including weapons and fragility.
The new Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office should combine the best of DFID and the FCO and draw on the UK’s leading NGOs, think tanks, academia and commercial partners. And it should champion the principles of transparency and accountability, impact and value for money in aid spending.
