The review finds ‘DFID’s focus on economic transformation to be an appropriate response to the development challenges facing Africa and a welcome increase in the ambition of its economic development work’. It further finds that DFID ‘has pursued a well-considered approach to building up its knowledge and expertise…. A new generation of centrally managed programmes has helped to boost delivery capacity…. Having correctly identified that programming must be context-specific, it introduced the inclusive growth diagnostic to support country planning’. The review also notes how the ‘new strategy makes positive commitments to politically smart approaches and economic inclusion’.
