This brief outlines some priority opportunities where Budget 2018 can make meaningful contributions to Canadian and global objectives in global development and humanitarian assistance – working in collaboration with partners to implement Canada’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy and improve the effectiveness of Canada’s development cooperation. The brief touches upon five areas where Canada can do this: through a ten-year timetable for increasing Canadian ODA; a strong focus on the poorest and most marginalized, in particular women and girls; a humanitarian response commensurate with growing needs; a commitment to new and additional climate finance; and greater transparency over spending.
