UK Department for International Development
The United Kingdom has a new aid chief: Alok Sharma, who formerly served as employment minister at the U.K. Department of Work and Pensions.
Sharma is the third official to lead the U.K. Department for International Development in 2019, after Penny Mordaunt and Rory Stewart. Mordaunt left the post in May after being assigned to take on the role of U.K. Secretary of State for Defense. Stewart was appointed in May, but resigned after Boris Johnson became the new prime minister in late July.
