star this property answer text <p>Malawi is facing its worst food crises since independence. The UK’s commitment to Malawi will help feed and sustain over a quarter of a million vulnerable people and treat 150,000 children and vulnerable adults suffering from malnutrition. We are preparing further support to prevent cholera and other waterborne diseases. We are urging our international partners to further scale-up their response now, as we continue to work with the Government of Malawi at the policy level to break the cycle of recurring humanitarian crises.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DFID helped launch and has committed £285 million to the No Lost Generation Initiative.

star this property answer text <p>We have conducted an assessment of the effects of recent changes, and our conclusion is that the impact is relatively limited, for 3 reasons:</p><ol><li>fluctuations are not new;</li><li>almost all of our payments are in pounds, so fluctuations do not directly impact departmental finances; and</li><li>the partners we work with are carefully selected to make sure they have robust financial mechanisms in place, to deal with currency fluctuations and other risks.</li></ol> more like this
