Funds are spent through a range of delivery channels including private sector projects, challenge funds, funding through multilateral agencies and funding through African Governments.</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="6"><p>£ thousands</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>2014</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Agriculture, forestry and fishing</p></td><td><p>£33,327</p></td><td><p>£48,426</p></td><td><p>£45,354</p></td><td><p>£44,748</p></td><td><p>£61,350</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The private sector is vital for boosting food production in Africa. UK companies can participate in our projects to improve agricultural markets in a number of ways. The African Agriculture Development Fund (AgDevCo), which is a not for profit UK based company, invests debt and equity in African agribusinesses to create jobs, boost food security and increase prosperity. DFID is a principal funder of AgDevCo. UK companies are also implementers of our agriculture projects after winning competitive tenders. We share information with companies active in African agricultural markets either as buyers or investors. UK companies can be part of proposals to DFID funded challenge funds, such as the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund, but only through their links to partner companies based in Africa rather than as direct beneficiaries.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Ethiopia is in the midst of its worst drought for 30 years, with 18.2 million people, approximately 20% of the population, in need of humanitarian assistance at the peak of the crisis. There has been a strong effort by the Government of Ethiopia and humanitarian partners to help save lives and safeguard livelihoods through provision of food, water and other essential supplies.</p><p>The UK Government has responded quickly and decisively since the onset of the drought in July 2015. So far, the UK Government has committed £145 million overall, making us the second largest donor to the response. This has included a commitment of £40 million to provide food aid to 3.8 million people in 2016 alone.</p><p>As Ethiopia moves into the traditional hungry period of July-September, the Government of Ethiopia and United Nations will revise their funding appeal, which is currently over a billion pounds and 70 % funded. The UK Government will continue to provide support and leadership to the humanitarian response in the coming months.</p>

However, DFID has contributed £70.1 million over three years (2014-16) to the Ethiopia Humanitarian Response Fund (HRF), a pooled donor fund responding to the most urgent drought needs. DFID is the largest donor to the HRF (74% of current funding), which is administered by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).</p><p>In 2016 alone, the HRF has granted £40 million to 48 projects run by organizations, including World Vision and Catholic Relief Services, to bring food, water and emergency healthcare to over half a million of the most drought affected men, women and children in Ethiopia.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis. We have pledged over £2.3 billion, our largest ever response to a humanitarian crisis.</p><p>The UN estimates that, of 13.5 million people in need of humanitarian assistance inside Syria, 4.6 million are living in areas where humanitarian access is extremely restricted, including 592,700 people living under siege. It is unacceptable and illegal to use starvation as a weapon of war.</p><p>We are doing all we can to open up humanitarian access. We have supported the UN and international NGOs since the start of the conflict to deliver aid to UN-designated hard-to-reach and besieged areas. UK co-sponsored UN Security Council Resolutions have enabled over 300 convoys of aid to reach vulnerable people in hard-to-reach areas without the consent of the Syrian regime. We will continue to use our position in the UN Security Council and International Syria Support Group to push for unrestricted and unfettered humanitarian access, whilst maintaining the pressure for a political settlement to bring the suffering of the Syrian people to an end.</p>
