However, we will continue to review readiness for countries to self-finance their development, or transition from traditional aid to different forms of UK support based on mutual interest and engaging other parts of the UK Government.</p> more like this

This includes access to clean water, food, medicines, protection and other life-saving assistance, targeted towards the most vulnerable people in Iraq.</p><p>Through the Conflict, Security and Stabilisation Fund (CSSF), the UK provides funding for projects designed to support community cohesion and encourage reconciliation, acceptance and tolerance between communities.</p><p>In our dialogue with the Government of Iraq, the Kurdistan Regional Government, and the United Nations, UK Ministers and officials frequently raise the importance of protecting the rights of minorities.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In October 2016, the World Food Programme reported that 39% of Yemen’s estimated fuel needs (including for diesel oil) were imported into Yemen. Although we do not have precise figures, this is likely to have affected the availability of diesel for the generation of electricity and functioning of water pumps as Yemen is dependent on imports for the majority of its fuel needs.</p><p>The Department of International Development is providing £1.42 million to the UN Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM) to speed up the clearance process for shipments of essential fuel and food to Yemen.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Operations started in Mosul and surrounding areas on 16 October 2016. UN casualty figures for Ninewah (the governorate in which Mosul is located) estimate that 332 civilians were killed in November and 566 civilians in October. The UN, the UK and our partners are clear that the situation in Mosul is a result of Daesh’s utter disregard for civilians. The Iraqi Security Forces and the Coalition are making every effort during operations to protect civilians. The UN cannot verify these figures and state that they are likely to be at the lower end of the scale. The numbers are not disaggregated by the cause of civilian deaths.</p><p>As of 9 December, more than 85,000 people have been displaced from Mosul, half of them children. The UK is supporting the UN and partners to assist these people and around 45,000 people still inside Mosul in areas re-taken from Daesh, including children. This includes vital humanitarian assistance, including food, water, shelter, medical and protection services.</p><p> </p><p><strong><br> </strong></p><p> </p>
