star this property answer text <p>DFID is concerned by deteriorating levels of food security in the Horn of Africa. This is largely a result of poor rainfall across much of the region and political instability and insecurity, including in Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia and South Sudan.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is a world leader in supporting those at risk of food insecurity, and has taken early action across the region to save lives. This includes £8 million of additional support in Somalia to support emergency interventions and resilience, and £12 million in Ethiopia to support cash transfers to meet emergency food needs. In Sudan, DFID has contributed £30 million this fiscal year to humanitarian interventions. DFID will continue to monitor the situation closely and press the international community to commit further support where it is needed.</p><p> </p><p>DFID will also continue to support communities and states in the Horn to build resilience to crises and shocks. Our work on humanitarian early warning systems raises awareness of crises where food security is deteriorating, and we prioritise longer-term responses to support food security, including through agricultural programmes.</p>

We estimate that UK-funded assistance provided since August 2017 has reached most of the 1.3 million refugees and vulnerable host community members targeted by the international humanitarian Joint Response Plan. Our aid is making a significant difference to the lives of the refugees and we are providing assistance in all major sectors, including food security and nutrition, shelter, health, protection (including gender-based violence), site management, water, hygiene promotion and sanitation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not allocate money from the ICF specifically to raise awareness of climate change in developing countries.</p><p> </p><p>Nearly all developing countries signed the 2015 Paris Agreement and they continue to be active in the international climate negotiations. The Least Developed Country group (a bloc of 48 nations particularly vulnerable to climate change) were among those calling on the United Nations Secretary General to convene a climate summit in September this year to raise global ambition on tackling climate change. The UK and Egypt, alongside Malawi, Bangladesh, the Netherlands and St Lucia, are leading work to secure international commitments to take more action to help countries cope with climate change impacts.</p><p> </p><p>Developing country governments are already taking action themselves. For example, Bangladesh has introduced a National Resilience Programme to ensure it has the capacity to respond to extreme weather events, and the UK is assisting them with that. Bangladesh is one of the global leaders in cutting the cost and impact of natural disasters.</p>
