star this property answer text <p>Tackling climate change is a priority for the UK Government and for the Department for International Development (DFID), and we are already providing significant assistance to developing countries to help them deal with climate change. It is clear however that the world is not on track to avoid dangerous climate change and environmental damage. The Secretary of State wants to see what more we can do with the UK’s aid budget and how we can encourage others to take more action. The UN Climate Action Summit in September is a critical moment to increase global ambition and I am pleased that the UK playing a leading role in shaping the agenda on how to build resilience to cope with climate change already locked in.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the devastating impact of Cyclone Kenneth and has moved quickly to respond. In Mozambique, which has suffered the worst effects, we have supported the provision of emergency shelter, health and sanitation to the worst-affected populations with an emergency grant of £3m; we are now assessing options for further assistance. In Comoros the UK does not have a permanent presence and we are therefore deferring to partners. The main platform for relief has been the UN CERF Facility, to which the UK is the largest donor. In Tanzania the cyclone had limited impact and we are not planning specific additional assistance.</p> more like this

In response, the UK has disbursed £18 million last month to help UN agencies meet their most urgent needs such as chlorination of water supply systems, distributing hygiene kits and deploying expert teams to areas most at risk.</p><p> </p><p>To help prepare for outbreaks of cholera, the UK led a joint Met Office, NASA and US scientist team to accurately predict where the disease will spread to in Yemen. We contributed 25% towards the cost of cholera vaccination campaigns which have vaccinated over 2 million people in both Houthi and Government of Yemen controlled areas to date.</p> more like this

As a result we only channel support through organisations with a strong record of delivering and monitoring assistance, such as UN agencies and international NGOs.</p><p>To identify the most vulnerable, UN agencies use a range of tools such as household level assessments. Some, like the World Food Programme, use technology such as biometric verification to confirm that those most in need are being reached.</p><p>Through UK diplomatic channels we press authorities to facilitate aid delivery. This can include getting visas issued or travel permission granted for certain areas.</p><p>Earlier this year the UK brought together heads of UN agencies and lead donors to determine how to better coordinate on the ground to deliver the right interventions at the right time to the most vulnerable. The Humanitarian Coordinator is holding UN agencies to account to deliver this.</p>
