star this property answer text <p>Tackling climate change is a priority for the UK Government and for the Department for International Development (DFID), and we are already providing significant assistance to developing countries to help them deal with climate change. It is clear however that the world is not on track to avoid dangerous climate change and environmental damage. The Secretary of State wants to see what more we can do with the UK’s aid budget and how we can encourage others to take more action. The UN Climate Action Summit in September is a critical moment to increase global ambition and I am pleased that the UK playing a leading role in shaping the agenda on how to build resilience to cope with climate change already locked in.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the devastating impact of Cyclone Kenneth and has moved quickly to respond. In Mozambique, which has suffered the worst effects, we have supported the provision of emergency shelter, health and sanitation to the worst-affected populations with an emergency grant of £3m; we are now assessing options for further assistance. In Comoros the UK does not have a permanent presence and we are therefore deferring to partners. The main platform for relief has been the UN CERF Facility, to which the UK is the largest donor. In Tanzania the cyclone had limited impact and we are not planning specific additional assistance.</p> more like this

The UK is clear that the best way to avoid abortion is through giving women information and contraception, so they can decide whether, when and how many children to have. Therefore, the primary aim and vast majority of our investment in reproductive health is to increase uptake of voluntary family planning, which helps reduce demand for abortion.</p><p> </p><p>The UK funds the International Planned Parenthood Federation to work in developing countries, rather than the Planned Parenthood Federation of America which founded, but is now separate from, the Guttmacher Institute. There is no conflict of interest arising from UK Government support.</p>
