star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development is deeply concerned by the recent attacks in northern Borno and is committed to providing support to those who have been forced to flee their homes. Our partners are increasing their assistance in Maiduguri and Monguno to make sure that newly displaced people have rapid access to food, shelter, healthcare, protection, and water. DFID is one of the largest donors to the World Food Programme’s emergency operation in Nigeria, which is scaling up to provide cash and food assistance to new arrivals.</p><p> </p><p>My team is closely monitoring new needs and will continue to flex our existing £300 million humanitarian programme to provide assistance. DFID and FCO officials met with the Vice President of Nigeria last week to stress the importance of ensuring access to humanitarian assistance for newly displaced people.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is firmly committed to ensuring that the needs of children affected by conflict are addressed. 50% of DFID’s spending is directed towards fragile states and regions, including the many countries which Save the Children highlights are the most dangerous for children.</p><p>Our investment in protecting children in conflict zones is emphasised through our many multi-lateral and bilateral programmes around the world. Some of the examples of how we achieve this are as follows. We are the largest contributor to Education Cannot Wait, the first global movement aid fund dedicated to education in emergencies and protracted crises. Through this, we target some of the world’s most vulnerable children, aiming to reach 3.4 million children through its first set of investments. We contribute funds to the No Lost Generation Initiative, a commitment by the international community to support children and youth affected by the Syria and Iraq crises, mainly in education and protection. In Somalia, we work with the UN and international NGOs to ensure the rights of children affected by conflict are addressed through family reunification, support to their nutrition needs and reducing the risks faced by displaced children. In Yemen and Iraq we fund UN agencies to undertake critical child protection work. In Afghanistan we seek to change the way the conflict is fought to reduce child casualties and ensure that vulnerable children have access to supportive services.</p><p>We do not have plans to publish a response to Save the Children’s report, <em>The War on Children</em> - DFID officials are in regular contact with Save the Children on this agenda. We recently partnered to co-host a high level Wilton Park dialogue to address the mental health and psychosocial support needs of children affected by conflict in the Middle East.</p>
