star this property answer text <p>We are very concerned by the potential funding cliff edge the UN is facing in June. The UN’s 2019 humanitarian appeal for Yemen is the largest in the world at $4.2 billion. The Geneva Pledging Conference in February of this year saw $2.6 billion pledged, approximately 20% of which has been disbursed to date.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is actively engaging with other large donors to encourage the rapid disbursement of funding to the UN to enable it to cover urgent needs.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has also brought forward funding and we will have disbursed over half of our £200 million pledge for this financial year (2019/2020) by the beginning of June. This included funds for UNICEF to respond rapidly to a spike in cholera. As a result, cholera cases have declined for four weeks in a row and we hope a wider outbreak has been avoided.</p> more like this

The Geneva Pledging Conference in February of this year saw $2.6 billion pledged, approximately 20% of which has been disbursed to date.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has brought forward funding to cover urgent UN funding gaps and will have disbursed over half of our £200 million funding by the beginning of June. We will release our remaining funds promptly and in line with our partners’ funding requirements.</p> more like this

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

This means working to bring about an end to conflicts, helping migrant origin countries to reduce the drivers of illegal migration by building stability, and tackling criminal smuggling gangs.</p><p> </p><p>Under DFID’s £75 million humanitarian migration programme, we have allocated up to £5 million to assistance and protection for vulnerable refugees and migrants in Libya, which includes targeted healthcare provision. Alongside this, through our contributions to the EU Trust Fund for Africa, we are supporting the UNHCR’s emergency evacuations from Libya, voluntary returns and reintegration, as well as providing limited support for those within detention centres.</p><p> </p><p>As announced yesterday, DFID has committed £1 million to the UN Flash Appeal for Libya which will assist the most vulnerable people, including refugees and migrants.</p>
