This includes centrally managed funding to the UN Peacebuilding Fund and bilateral projects focused on specific countries, all of which can be searched using the relevant key words. Details are updated routinely once a month. Prior to this all new data is required to go through an approval stage before they are eligible for publication. From the date this approval is received it can take up to 2 months for that information to publish to the Development tracker. This is to enable the project team to ensure that the information that they have provided is correct prior to the monthly publication refresh.</p><p>Where funding from the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund is managed by DFID, programme summaries for all can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/conflict-stability-and-security-fund-programme-summaries#programme-summaries" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/conflict-stability-and-security-fund-programme-summaries#programme-summaries</a>.</p>

The UK’s priority is to deliver a Compact that prioritises three fundamental principles for managing migration: 1) the international community must help ensure that refugees claim asylum in the first safe country that can offer protection; 2) Improve the ways we distinguish between refugees fleeing persecution and economic migrants; and 3) Maintain the right and obligation of all states to control their borders, and to accept the return of their nationals.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is standard practice for the UK Government to stay in regular contact with the US administration on a range of issues, including the Migration and Refugee Compacts. The UK – alongside partners – remains committed to the UN process to develop both a Global Compact for Migration and a Global Compact for Refugees. The decision by the United States to withdraw from the former does not alter the UK Government’s commitment to engage fully and work towards the successful delivery of these compacts. We believe that the Global Compact on Migration should offer an effective international framework to ensure that migration is safe and orderly and that it should balance the rights and responsibilities of both states and migrants. This should include states committing to the full implementation of the existing legal frameworks that protect fundamental human rights of their own citizens and of migrants.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The new Single Departmental Plan of the Department for International Development (DFID) puts the Sustainable Development Goal 2 (SDG2) at the centre of our work to eradicate extreme poverty, deliver inclusive economic development, including sustainable agricultural programmes and investments, and build resilience. Spend through our bilateral and multilateral agriculture programmes to reduce hunger and under-nutrition has increased, from £243million (2012) to £484 million (2015) and roughly £600 million in 2016. We are also working to shape the multilateral agenda. The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) harnesses both public and private investments for SDG2 and implements through a range of multilateral institutions. DFID is a global leader in addressing acute hunger through humanitarian and famine relief. DFID has also committed to improve the nutrition of 50 million people overseas by 2020 and published a Position Paper setting out our plans. Total spend on nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive programmes has increased, from £304 million (2012) to £667 million (2015).</p><p> </p><p>We are also supporting robust monitoring of progress against the agreed indicators for SDG2 to be achieved by 2030.</p>
