star this property answer text <p>The Department supports marine conservation activities overseas through our funding to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). For example FAO hosts the International Plan of Action to Prevent, Deter, and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing. The GEF has funded marine protected areas across the world that are more than twice the size of Alaska.</p><p>The UK’s core support to FAO in the past five years was a total of £92 million, comprising £42 million in 2012/13, £32 million in 2014/15 and £18 million in 2016/17. DFID’s contribution to the Global Environment Facility in the past five years was £262.5 million, comprising £52.5 million per year for each of the financial years from 2012 to 2016 inclusive. Neither FAO nor the GEF publish a breakdown of spending specifically on marine conservation.</p> more like this

The conflict makes any long-term investment in infrastructure difficult so we are also calling on all parties to the conflict to protect civilian infrastructure, including Hodeidah port, from further damage; and to restart political talks in order to end the conflict.</p><p><strong><br> </strong></p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in the aid strategy, UK aid: tackling global challenges in the national interest, the government will ensure that every penny of money spent delivers value for taxpayers, and projects that do not will be cancelled. Departments follow good financial management principles set out in HM Treasury guidance in ‘Managing Public Money’ for all their expenditure. In addition, ODA spend is subject to scrutiny by the Independent Commission for Aid Impact. The UK Aid Strategy also commits all departments to achieving greater levels of transparency in aid spend.</p><p> </p><p>DFID has robust internal processes such as strong ministerial oversight, mandatory reviews on all programmes, detailed management information for use at all levels of the organisation including on project performance and quality. Other departments will have their own arrangements and DFID will continue to share good practice advice with them.</p> more like this
