star this property answer text <p>In order to charge and prosecute hate crimes, the CPS uses the legal definition provided by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and Criminal Justice Act 2003. The shared police and CPS definition of hate crime is based on the perception of the victim or any other person and allows for case flagging and monitoring as well as appropriate victim support, it does not affect the charge.</p><p>This flagging definition comes from the recommended definition in the Macpherson report which was published in 1999 as a result of the inquiry into the murder of Stephen Lawrence. The Macpherson Report found a lack of confidence within communities that hate crime was being treated seriously by the police and Criminal Justice System and recommended that the definition of a racist incident should be, ‘any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person’. Putting the victim’s perception at the heart of the definition gives a clear signal that, once flagged as a hate crime, an appropriate investigation will follow and evidence to support the law on hostility will be proactively sought. The definition seeks to encourage victims to report and to increase confidence in the Criminal Justice System.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is already taking action to address the specific recommendations of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development report Trade and Environment Review 2013.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>At the recent Climate Summit in New York, the Department for International Development on behalf of the Government joined the new Global Alliance on Climate Smart Agriculture. This Alliance aims to enhance the resilience of 500 million people in agriculture by 2030 while at the same time reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions from agriculture. DFID is also a major funder of international agriculture research. This includes support to the Climate Change and Food Security Programme of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>On land use the UK used its G8 Presidency in 2013 to place land high on the agenda. G8 leaders agreed the principle that “Land transactions should be transparent, respecting the property rights of local communities”. They also launched eight land partnerships to support the implementation of the Voluntary Guidelines on Land Tenure. The UK leads the partnerships in Tanzania and Nigeria and co-leads in Ethiopia. Since the 2013 G8 Summit, the Department for International Development has scaled up its work on land and property rights, through bilateral programmes and multilateral support.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government also helps to expand market access and trading opportunities for developing countries. For example, the Government played a critical role in concluding the Economic Partnership Agreement negotiations between the EU and Southern Africa and West Africa. Least developed countries, and countries from the African, Caribbean and Pacific who have signed Economic Partnership Agreements, have duty free and quota free access to the EU market.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
