UK food aid needs 'tighter project management'

ICAI chief commissioner Graham Ward said:

DFID's pace of delivery at the global level is good.

At the portfolio level, DFID has scaled up investments significantly, although it could have done so more quickly, given the high priority it gives to nutrition.
