In 2013 the UK became the first G7 country to meet the UN target of delivering 0.7% of Gross National Income (GNI) as Official Development Assistance (ODA). This was a tremendous achievement for the UK and reaffirms the coalition government’s commitment to deliver 0.7% from 2013 onwards. The UK is on track to spend 0.7% of GNI on ODA in 2014. The Government is supporting a Private Members’ Bill (PMB) which would enshrine the 0.7% commitment into law.
