Jersey Overseas Aid is managed by a small team of professional staff and governed by a six-member Commission, which is appointed by the States of Jersey (the Island’s elected parliament) and Chaired by Jersey’s Minister for International Development.
JOA is accountable to Jersey’s parliament as a whole rather than the government of the day. This independence – enshrined in the Overseas Aid Commission (Jersey) Law (2005) – helps JOA pursue its long-term objectives unencumbered by short-term political considerations.
We have a dedicated page set up where you can download our PDFs and reports.
