Making science work for development

Department for International Development

The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty. They are ending the need for aid by creating jobs, unlocking the potential of girls and women and helping to save lives when humanitarian emergencies hit.

A founding member of UKCDS, DFID works in the UK and in 150 countries around the world to help meet the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs).

Professor Charlotte Watts, Chief Scientific Adviser and Head of Research at DFID, sits on the UKCDS Board.
