DFID Results Estimates

Information about the aggregate results estimates produced by the Department for International Development.

We publish DFID’s aggregate results estimates once a year in the summer. This includes headline results that monitor the delivery of DFID’s Single Departmental Plan (SDP). The majority of our SDP headline results report progress cumulatively over the current spending review period 2015 to 2020.

A previous version of DFID’s aggregate results estimates was published under DFID’s Results Framework (DRF). It covered the period 2011 to 2015 and was initially set out in UK aid: Changing lives, delivering results and in some cases were updated with subsequent announcements.

Latest results release and methodology

DFID published an “Update on Results achieved by The Department for International Development between 2011 and 2015” on 5 December 2018. The DFID Results Framework (DRF) results indicators were last published in DFID Annual Report and Account 2015-16 and in results sector pages alongside the annual report. The annual report indicated that complete information for certain indicators would be available in 2017. This report uses the latest available information to set out final estimates of what was achieved in the DRF for the indicators on maternal lives saved, newborn lives saved and malaria specific deaths.

Upcoming results releases

DFID will publish its next headline results in summer 2019.
