DFID response to ICAI recommendations on: DFID’s Transport and Urban Infrastructure Investments

DFID welcomes the Independent Commission for Aid Impact’s performance review of DFID’s transport and urban infrastructure investments, and its recommendations.



Transport and urban infrastructure are key ingredients for economic growth and poverty reduction, and the review rightly recognises that at present, investment in transport and urban infrastructure in developing countries falls well below the level required to support economic growth and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

DFID welcomes ICAI’s conclusions that we are achieving good performance on our strategic approach and supporting multilateral finance, and their recognition of our clear understanding of our comparative advantage within the sector.
