From the article:
Aid experts and NGOs have warned of potential disruption to their work as U.K. lawmakers rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal on Tuesday night and launched a vote of no confidence in the government.
However, Mikaela Gavas, visiting fellow at the Center for Global Development Europe, told Devex she thinks the U.K. will continue paying its development dues to the EU even in a no-deal scenario.
“The U.K. has said it’s committed to being a ‘good development partner’ and so essentially that means whatever the outcome [of Brexit negotiations] they will honor their commitments to the EDF and the EU budgets,” she said.
“It makes sense for the U.K. to do that because … if they don’t … it will mean less money going to developing countries, a sudden halt in the programs ... For the larger development endeavour, it will have pretty dire consequences.”
