star this property answer text <p>DFID has provided over £18 million in humanitarian and health assistance to conflict-affected people in Kachin and Northern Shan States since 2011, and expects to spend a further £4.9 million this year. We coordinate our assistance with other donors. Other donors have historically supported housing for displaced people. Currently our assessment is that conditions for large-scale return or voluntary resettlement are not present in the absence of a ceasefire and steps towards a peace agreement. We would expect to provide support to return and voluntary resettlement when the political situation permits.</p> more like this

Between 2012 and 2015 DFID has allocated over £17 million for humanitarian assistance for internally displaced persons (IDP) in Kachin and Northern Shan States, including in non-government controlled areas. We do not have figures for how much funding for the needs of internally displaced people in Kachin state is being provided by the Burmese government. The UN appeal for humanitarian assistance across Burma is currently only 27% funded. We regularly monitor the situation in the camps, including a visit by a DFID team in June 2015 to non-government controlled areas.</p> more like this

We have also provided £5m of humanitarian health programming. We also fund UN agencies for coordination and capacity building around gender based violence, camp management and water and sanitation. Minister of State Rt. Hon. Desmond Swayne TD MP visited Kachin in August 2014 and met with IDPs and camp officials to discuss their situation. DFID’s head of office visited Kachin in June 2015, visiting IDP camps around Laiza and discussing IDP issues with the Kachin Chief Minister.</p> more like this
