In 2014 the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) launched a Triennial Review to gather evidence on what WFD does, its relevance for UK foreign policy, and how effectively WFD delivers and complies with Cabinet Office corporate Governance standards.

The Department for International Development (DFID) conducts regular evaluations into the effectiveness of WFD’s work. Previous evaluations are accessible through DFID’s Development Tracker.

The latest annual review of WFD by DFID was completed in June 2016.  It concluded that WFD was meeting expectations for the first year of its DFID grant.
