This report sets out the need and rationale for the UK government to contribute an average of 0.3% of Official Development Assistance (ODA) per year over five years to fund new commitments to help safeguard and protect LGBTI+ people around the world. It outlines:
- The pressing need for increased UK funding in a post-Covid world.
- How this support will ensure the UK meets its international obligations on LGBTI+ rights.
- How UK funding can have the greatest reach and impact globally.
- Key principles to guide appropriate future resource allocation.
- Recommendations for the UK government to remain a global leader on LGBTI+ rights.
