What should the priorities be for UK aid in 2018?

Published on 2 January 2018

In November 2017 the UK Government appointed the Rt Hon Penny Mordaunt as Secretary of State for International Development.  In that role the Secretary of State is responsible for the majority of one of the world’s largest and most influential aid budgets.

With the world currently facing so many pressing global challenges, we asked researchers and students at IDS to share what they think the Secretary of State’s priorities for development should be in 2018.
