star this property answer text <p>I recognise that natural disasters can have a serious impact on affected countries’ ability to service external debts. The Government of Mozambique has not requested consideration for debt relief at this stage, and any consideration of official debt relief would need to be made via the Paris Club of official creditors and done in close coordination with the IMF. The UK Government is not an official creditor to Mozambique.</p><p> </p><p>The UK will continue to work with international partners, including the Paris Club, to explore the potential for more resilient debt-instruments that support faster economic recovery and stability in the international financial system, while preserving access to financing for development.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since 2017 my Department has spent over £49million on programmes that reduce the impact of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW). As set out in the UK’s policy document on mine action, this includes abandoned improvised explosive devices.</p><p>My Department measures the impact of mine action programmes by the amount of land released and available for productive use, rather than the number of devices removed, and through the number of beneficiaries of mine risk education. Programmes deliver life-saving mine risk education sessions to ensure communities living in some of the most heavily contaminated places in the world understand the dangers of landmines and ERW. Since 2017, we have supported over 17,000 mine risk education sessions benefitting nearly 400,000 boys, girls, men and women.</p><p>The mine action programme releases land in some of the most heavily contaminated countries in the world, ensuring communities can to return to their homes, travel safely to school and work, and farm their own land. In Iraq the removal of mines and improvised devices is enabling the return of displaced people to areas liberated from Daesh, where civilians are returning voluntarily to find their homes and public facilities significantly contaminated by abandoned improvised explosive devices.</p><p>The UK also supports national mine action authorities to manage their clearance of their own contamination more efficiently including training staff on quality assurance techniques and improving national mine action databases to make the most effective use of resources and ensure the most vulnerable communities have their land cleared.</p>
