The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) manages two complementary ODA funds, the Newton Fund and Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). These share the same primary objective: to promote economic development and welfare of developing countries through sustainable and equitable partnerships.
The 2017-18 annual report sets out how the funds deliver this objective as well as contributing to wider government goals. It explains how they are already having an impact and transforming lives and how we continue to develop and improve the funds, from increasing strategic coordination through to better monitoring and evaluation.
The report shines a spotlight on how Newton Fund and GCRF are working with partner countries to strengthen the capacity of individuals and institutions, both abroad and here in the UK, so that research and innovation for sustainable development can thrive.
