star this property answer text <p>Since the start of the Syria crisis, DFID has committed £2.46 billion, our largest ever response to a single humanitarian crisis. We have committed £429m to support activities in Jordan, through humanitarian, education and economic development programming. This funding has enabled over 126,000 Syrian refugees to access state education; allowed refugees to work legally, with over 70,000 work permits issued; and improved cross-community relations and much need infrastructure for Syrians and Jordanians living side by side in host communities. DFID has also allocated £543 million in humanitarian and development funding to Lebanon, providing nearly half a million cash grants and vouchers to help vulnerable people meet their basic needs, expanding the Lebanese education system to reach over 300,000 Syrian children, and improving infrastructure and services in 51 of the most conflict-prone municipalities. In 2016, DFID committed €328 million to the €3 billion EU Facility for Refugees in Turkey (FRIT). The UK is also contributing to the FRIT via our EU budget payments. The FRIT is supporting refugees and host communities by building schools, and providing health services and social welfare payments for the most vulnerable.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK government is deeply concerned about the findings of the IMPACT-se report into the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) new curriculum and it remains a priority for the Development for International Development (DFID) to commission an independent review of the PA’s textbooks. We are also continuing to raise our concerns about incitement, which the Minister did himself at a meeting with the Palestinian Education Minister earlier this year. Last week, on 4<sup>th</sup> December, DFID officials met the PA Minister for Education and raised UK concerns over specific examples in the IMPACT-SE report.</p><p> </p><p>Our timeline for the textbook review remains unchanged. We will complete the review by September 2019. The UK has been convening discussions with potential international partners on commissioning the review together, in order to increase the impact of the study. We will commission the review in the new year once we have concluded these discussions. We will publish further information once the assessment has been commissioned.</p><p> </p>

The cost of meeting the 0.7% commitment in the next calendar year will be dependent upon GNI forecasts, which will be published by the Office for Budget Responsibility at the Autumn Budget.</p> more like this

Additionally, DFID aid complies with UK and international counter terrorism legislation and our funding agreements commit partners to understand and comply with international counter terrorism legislation.</p> more like this
