star this property answer text <p>The Millennium Development Goal targets for clean water in sub-Saharan Africa were not met by the 2015 deadline. Between 2015 and 2018, DFID supported 17.5 million people in Africa to access clean water and/or better sanitation. For example, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, over 2.7 million people gained access to clean water with DFID’s support between 2015 and 2018. In Ethiopia, DFID supported 1.9 million people to access clean water and/or better sanitation.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>For each of the last five years the impact of DFID’s work has been set out in the Departmental Annual Reports and Accounts. The <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/750989/DFID-Annual-Report-Accounts-2017-18-amended-Oct18.pdf" target="_blank">DFID Annual Report and Accounts 2017-2018</a> also shows the results achieved during the period April 2015 to March 2018. In that period, UK Official Development Assistance reached 26.8 million people with humanitarian assistance and supported 40.3 million people to access clean water and/or better sanitation. Between January 2015 and December 2017, it supported the immunisation of approximately 37.4 million children, saving an estimated 610,000 lives. We are committed to improving the effectiveness and transparency of UK aid to ensure we are attaining maximum impact from our aid budget. The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) has the remit to provide independent scrutiny of the impact and value for money of all UK Government aid spending and reports its finding to Parliament’s International Development Committee.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The UN estimates that 10.9m people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) (an increase of 600,000 over 2018), all of whom are food insecure. An estimated 10.3m people are under-nourished. The UK provides no bilateral funding to the DPRK. The UK contributes to the UN Central Emergency Fund (CERF), along with other bilateral donors. CERF provided US$10m in humanitarian funding to DPRK in 2018, including allocations to the World Food Programme and Food and Agriculture Organisation for work on nutrition security. The CERF makes independent decisions on the allocation of resources based on assessed need.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is proud to support the Africa-led movement to end FGM, which has been instrumental in achieving the significant decline of the practice seen in recent decades – in 1985, 51% of girls around the world aged 15-19 had undergone FGM; today the figure is 37%. We are a global leader on this issue, having made the largest ever donor commitment to ending FGM, and we have galvanised others to take action of their own through our international Girl Summit.</p><p>We continue to support and accelerate the Africa-led movement, and encourage others to step up too, because if current trends in population growth continue the number of girls undergoing FGM will rise significantly over the next 15 years. Support from the UK has been critical to progress so far; in the last three years alone over 18 million people across 16 countries have publically pledged to abandon the practice, two more countries (Nigeria and the Gambia) have made the practice illegal and the largest ever collective of African organisations tackling FGM (600+) has come together to accelerate the Africa-led movement to end the practice.</p>
