star this property answer text <p>A key strategic objective of the UK aid strategy is to strengthen resilience and response to crises. This is, in our view, critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in the most vulnerable countries. DFID’s crises response is needs-based, and therefore particularly sensitive to women and girls, as one of the groups most impacted in crises. DFID also continuously adapts its programmes to prepare for, and build resilience to, crises. This includes a focus on supporting jobs and livelihoods for the most vulnerable groups including women and girls. In Nepal, we support disaster risk reduction efforts that provide work opportunities to the most vulnerable and ensure that women can access these through targeted recruitment campaigns. The DFID-funded Centre for Global Disaster Protection also works with developing countries to improve their financial resilience to disasters and help them safeguard economic development for the most vulnerable, including women and girls.</p><p> </p>

The UK has pressed for unfettered access directly with the Burmese government though ministerial and senior official calls and meetings, and as part of joint calls with other agencies and development partners working in Burma. The UK has also raised Burma three times at the UN Security Council. DFID has provided £1 million to the Burma Red Cross, which currently has limited access to Northern Rakhine. DFID is ready to support our partners already working in central Rakhine to act quickly to provide support in Northern Rakhine as soon as fuller access is granted.</p> more like this

Medical supplies are also imported into Red Sea ports on commercial vessels predominantly carrying food or fuel. In the last three months imports through Red Sea ports have increased. Further medical supplies also enter northern Yemen through UN flights into Sana’a airport. So far this year, these flights have been reliable and only one has not taken off as planned. UN agencies additionally import medical supplies through the southern port of Aden; we do not have an exact figure at this time, but they form only a clear minority of the total imports of medical supplies.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has provided £1.3 million to support the UN’s Verification and Inspection Mechanism and speed up the process of clearing commercial vessels entering Yemen.
