Partners for international development

The British Council manages international development projects worldwide, helping to create opportunities for people and societies to achieve positive change.

As trusted international development partners, we work in a range of development sectors, including civil society, justice and security, education, skills and employability, and public sector reform. 

Working closely with governments, donor organisations and the private sector, we deliver value for money international development solutions that are both effective and sustainable.
