star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development (DFID) has a robust process in place for reporting and managing all whistleblowing concerns. This process was recently refreshed to ensure it remains in line with Cabinet Office standards and recommended best practice. The process is managed independently by DFID’s internal audit department and has been designed to give confidence to all stakeholders to raise concerns, in line with the open and transparent culture that DFID has sought to create.</p><p>The whistleblowing reporting process is set out clearly on DFID’s external website (<a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/department-for-international-development/about#reporting-fraud" target="_blank">Reporting Fraud</a>) and in more detail within the department’s internal intranet, accessible by all staff. DFID has made civil service e-learning on fraud modules mandatory for all staff and has embedded fraud awareness components across many of its core training interventions. DFID has appointed a dedicated fraud resource across the department’s country office network to support staff on an on-going basis and keep the profile of whistleblowing high.</p><p>In additional to the regular awareness raising activities undertaken, DFID played an active role in publicising the cross civil service whistleblowing awareness week in 2016 and will do so again during September 2017.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Between 2011 and 2016, UK aid provided 12 million people with improved access to clean energy, including through off-grid renewable energy and other clean technologies like more efficient cook stoves. This is enabling businesses to be more productive, children to study after school and keeping women and girls safer after dark.</p><p>While DFID funding to energy technologies is informed by the needs of individual countries, the Department retains a strong preference in its bilateral programmes for clean energy solutions. This is consistent with UK leadership internationally, including through the £5.8bn commitment (2016 - 2021) for tackling climate change.</p> more like this
