unstar this property answer text <p>​The UK Government notes with concern the prevalence of organ trafficking in Egypt, which has been illegal in Egypt since 2010. Tackling the issue is a matter for the Egyptian authorities. However, organ harvesting can be a symptom of poverty in a society. The UK continues to help the Egyptian Government complete its programme of economic reforms and to support the population through this process. For example, we will be providing a $150 million loan guarantee in order to support these reforms.</p> more like this

Friends the Secretaries of State for Health (Mr Hunt) and Education (Ms Greening) discussed gender equality, women’s empowerment, and female education and employment rights with Chinese ministerial counterparts. Women’s empowerment will continue to be a key theme for this year’s ‘People to People’ Dialogue. Our Ambassador in Beijing, Dame Barbara Woodward, is a patron of ‘Inspiring Women China’, and launched a series of events in schools across China in March this year. Planned UK projects in China have girls’ empowerment as a key outcome.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>​UK-China cooperation on climate change and energy is a key pillar of the bilateral relationship: our work includes policy, technology, commercial and research collaboration. The UK's Natural Environment Research Council and the National Natural Science Foundation of China are working together to monitor concentrations and varieties of airborne particles and volatile gases in the atmosphere, and their potential impact on human health. The UK continues to provide strong support for the development of China's national emissions trading scheme which will cover 10% of global emissions. Since 2015, the UK's Climate Change Committee and their counterparts, China's Expert Committee on Climate Change, have been collaborating to identify the key risks posed by dangerous climate change to areas such as food security, human health, infrastructure and global supply chains.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK condemns Daesh's destruction of historical and religious buildings in Iraq, whether they be archaeological sites, churches, mosques or temples.</p><p>The UK's Cultural Protection Fund of £30 million is designed to build capacity and capability in conflict zones in order to protect cultural heritage. Over £4 million from the fund has been awarded to Iraq across four projects. £3 million of this has been allocated to the British Museum's Rescue Archaeology Project. This project supplements the skills of a team of Iraqi national heritage sector workers to assess and record the condition of heritage sites and carry out rescue archaeology as a preliminary to reconstruction at sites damaged by Daesh. The first cohort of Iraqi archaeologists completed their training in 2016 and the second cohort completed their training earlier this year in London.</p><p>The UK is also funding: the University of Manchester, working with the State Board for Antiquities and Heritage in Iraq, to survey and document the pre-Islamic Alexandrian city of Charax, as well as 14 other sites in Iraq; and the University of Liverpool to record, preserve and promote understanding of Yezidi heritage and identity.</p>
