Where DFID works
DFID works across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, many of which are fragile or at risk from fragile neighbours, and also has regional programmes in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, and development relationships with 3 aid dependent Overseas Territories – St Helena, the Pitcairn Islands and Montserrat. In addition to working directly in countries, DFID also gives UK Aid through multi-country global programmes and core contributions to multilaterals.
