Independent research for global prosperity

This note responds to the call for evidence on the Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) and provides recommendations on the following core questions:

  1. ICAI’s purpose and remit to examine the effectiveness of UK ODA and to focus on identifying what works best – i.e. what has the maximum impact - in UK ODA policies, programmes and interventions
  2. ensuring that ICAI’s output includes timely, action-orientated recommendations as well as broad critical analysis
  3. options for ministerial engagement with ICAI’s work
