What is the SNP doing for international development?

Since 2007, we’ve more than doubled our International Development Fund to £10 million per annum, and launched the £3 million per annum Climate Justice Fund, bringing our total spend on international development work since 2007 to over £87 million. We have also highlighted Scotland’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.

We are also continuing funding of Scotland’s Development Education Centres to inspire communities and young people to be good global citizens, as well as committing to training at least 50 women every year from international conflict zones in prevention and resolution of conflict.

We also commit to producing an annual report on the impact of our international development and other government policies on global poverty to ensure that their impact is fully assessed.
