star this property answer text <p>On World Food Day this year, the UK announced a package of £96.5 million to help UNICEF continue to tackle malnutrition in Yemen over the coming three years. This package will screen 2.2 million children under the age of five for malnutrition and provide urgent treatment for 70,000 of the most vulnerable children.</p><p>The recent increase in military activity in and around Hodeidah has had a relatively limited impact on this programme so far, as the programme’s activities are implemented countrywide, not exclusively in Hodeidah. The continued flow of goods through and onwards from Hodeidah port, however, will be critical to ensure that humanitarian supplies can reach those in need.</p><p>In Hodeidah city, stocks of supplies, including nutrition and fuel are still available thanks to the pre-positioning by UNICEF and its partners. Efforts are now focused on scaling up lifesaving activities within the humanitarian response.</p> more like this

Since 2011 we have supported 47 million people to cope with the effects of climate change, and 17 million to access clean energy.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is playing a strong role in ensuring developed countries fulfil the collective commitment to mobilise $100 billion in climate finance by 2020 from public and private sources.

star this property answer text <p>The information required to answer this question is not held centrally, and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. Whilst it is safe to say that DFID Staff Members currently loaned to FCO have joint reporting responsibilities between DFID and FCO due to the nature of those relationships, we are unable to provide further information on staff more broadly. Each DFID Employee has one primary reporting line within DFID and it is information about those reporting relationships which is captured centrally. Some staff may have a secondary reporting line in to FCO but such relationships are managed at a local level and, as such, to draw that information from each individual department within DFID would involve disproportionate costs.</p> more like this
