The U.K. Department for International Development has released its operational plans for all countries receiving U.K. bilateral aid.

The operational plans lay out the projects and programs that the United Kingdom will fund and implement over the next four years in each of its 27 remaining aid-recipient countries. The U.K. reduced the number of its aid recipients following the government’s sweeping bilateral aid review.

“I am delighted to make these plans public,” U.K. Secretary of State for International Development Andrew Mitchell said May 31. “As part of the U.K. Aid Transparency Guarantee, we have committed to showing the British public where every penny of their aid money goes and the difference it makes to the lives of poorest people around the world.”

The full list of the aid plans, which cover the period 2011-2015, is available at this link.
