UK aid from the British people



Zimbabwe made exemplary progress towards the MDG indicators throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s. The economic and humanitarian crisis from 2000 to 2008 stalled and in some cases starkly reversed many of these gains. Since 2009 Zimbabwe’s economy has recovered but that recovery is now looking increasingly fragile.

Top priorities

  • promoting economic development
  • support the provision of basic services including access to health, education and water
  • help to strengthen democracy

Help with Sector and Budget Figures
Please note that although budgets are generally split by year, some departments publish budgets that span multiple years. These are represented in the first year of their allocation. Cross-government allocations such as Prosperity Fund and Conflict, Stability and Security Fund are known to duplicate budgets published by other departments, as well as using multi-year budgets.
