The National Audit Office estimates at least £4.2billion of the £14.6 billion spent on foreign aid in 2018 went on bilateral programmes that targeted gender equality as a policy objective.

But the NAO said this was probably wrong because the department did not have an ‘accurate grasp’ of which projects had a gender equality focus and how much it spends on them. It found a third of schemes were wrongly classified.
