DISCLAIMER: This is not an official publication of the House of Commons or the House of Lords. It has not been approved by either House or its committees. All-Party Parliamentary Groups are informal groups of Members of both Houses with a common interest in particular issues. The views expressed in this report are those of the group.
Law makers have many competing demands on their schedule, so our organisation can summarise and synthesise relevant ‘aid matching’ reports and can, where appropriate, link this to our APPG goals. So, we can become the ‘go to’ place for receptive policymakers to be briefed on related issues. As a catalytic policy reform organisation to boost development finance; having produced the working, proven MM Aid Model to increase aid quantity & quality, we are at the nexus between robust policy tools, informed debate, agenda setting and issue prioritisation. We offer value to parliamentarians who have immense pressures on their time. They want concise, verifiable, up to date briefing and debating materials. As an umbrella organisation we have the inherent advantage of working with think tanks, research institutes, academia, and civil society so parliamentarians can get specialist information in one place.
