Some of the poorest and most conflict-ridden countries in the world will have their UK aid programmes cut by more than half.
The cuts include the aid programme to Somalia by 60% and to South Sudan by 59%.
The planned cut for Syria is reported at 67% and for Libya it is 63%.
Nigeria’s aid programme would be cut by 58%.
The bare percentages include cuts of 50% in the west Balkans, and 60% in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
UK funding in the Sahel is listed as falling from £340m to £23m.
James Wani, Christian Aid’s country director in South Sudan, said: “Cuts on the scale being reported couldn’t come at a worse time for a country in crisis. The peace talks are at an extremely delicate stage, and FCDO funding has been crucial to Christian Aid’s work with local churches – as one of the most trusted institutions – in ending the conflict. Without funding for peacebuilding, the talks risk failure. And without peace, development and humanitarian work can’t succeed. People in South Sudan cannot afford for that to happen.”
