We therefore do not see that attempting to define a separate category of finance for loss and damage as useful or practical. Of the £5.8bn on climate finance we have committed to spend from 2016-2021 the UK aims to spend 50% on adaptation and 50% on mitigation.</p> more like this

Its objective is to reduce deaths from severe pneumonia by reducing the cost of the pneumococcal vaccine.

So far, 114 million children have been vaccinated with AMC-supported pneumococcal vaccines, saving 762,000 lives.</p><p> </p><p>DFID has committed $485 million to AMC from 2010 until 2020. The AMC has consistently delivered and performs very strongly. It scored an A+ in its last Annual Review. The current end date is scheduled for December 2020. DFID are currently reviewing vaccine demand projections and in discussions with other stakeholders whether an extension is required in order to attract new manufacturers and generate wider benefits. This review is in line with our approach to maximise effectiveness and ensure good value for money.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The current Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is an immediate priority for the Department for International Development (DFID), we have dedicated teams leading a coordinated UK HMG response effort. The UK is one of the leading donors to the response in DRC, and preparedness efforts in the region.</p><p>DFID have so far contributed £33.5 million to Ebola in DRC in 2018/19. Moreover, we are the leading donor by far for regional preparedness, contributing £14 million across the most-at-risk countries (mainly for Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan). We have also provided specialist staff into the response and are continuing to push other donors to step up their engagement. Beyond funding and technical support, we are actively lobbying to improve management of the response, including coordination. While the efforts of the Government of DRC and the WHO have been laudable, significant improvements must be made in terms of coordination and management to bring the outbreak to an end.</p><p>I plan to visit North Kivu in Eastern DRC later this month to understand the situation on the ground and how the UK can continue to support the response. One immediate priority is the need to galvanise other donors to support the response and preparedness efforts. We are also working closely with responders on the ground to ensure management and coordination of the response reflects the severity of the current situation and the high risk of further spread, and to build trust with affected communities.</p>
