£1m of Guernsey's Overseas Aid budget is being returned to the exchequer to help with the States' response to coronavirus.
The Overseas Aid Commission says grants for projects in 2021 are being suspended, with much of the work planned for this year also being cancelled.
That means around £1m will remain unspent, meaning the Commission can return it to the General Revenue.
The President of the Commission says the coronavirus has showed how interconnected the world is and how the States still has a commitment to overseas aid.
The Commissions says it will continue with its normal approach to Emergency Relief funding, which has budget of £350,000 this year.
