Government maintains overseas aid budget but fails to produce credible plan for future, say Irish NGOs

14 october 2014

In response to today’s Budget 2015 announcement, Dóchas, the network of Ireland’s overseas development NGOs, said it is disappointed that despite the economic recovery, the Government has failed to make progress towards the UN overseas aid target of 0.7% GNI. The umbrella body said it is urgently calling on the Government to lay out its plan for the future of Ireland’s aid programme.
