The Scottish Government intends to work with the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) to ensure that there is a smooth transition phase for programmes on the ground in developing countries. There will be continued funding support, where appropriate, to those DFID programmes which span the independence period to avoid any disruption to those programmes and their recipients. International Development is just one of the areas where future Scottish and Westminster governments can choose to work together to complement each other’s activity. Scotland is likely to also be a significant donor to multilateral organisations reflecting similar priorities as the UK in this area.
