star this property answer text <p>The UK is proud to support the Africa-led movement to end FGM, which has been instrumental in achieving the significant decline of the practice seen in recent decades – in 1985, 51% of girls around the world aged 15-19 had undergone FGM; today the figure is 37%. We are a global leader on this issue, having made the largest ever donor commitment to ending FGM, and we have galvanised others to take action of their own through our international Girl Summit.</p><p>We continue to support and accelerate the Africa-led movement, and encourage others to step up too, because if current trends in population growth continue the number of girls undergoing FGM will rise significantly over the next 15 years. Support from the UK has been critical to progress so far; in the last three years alone over 18 million people across 16 countries have publically pledged to abandon the practice, two more countries (Nigeria and the Gambia) have made the practice illegal and the largest ever collective of African organisations tackling FGM (600+) has come together to accelerate the Africa-led movement to end the practice.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We welcomed President Kiir’s November decree calling for unhindered humanitarian access. However, data from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) shows that humanitarian aid continues to be obstructed by all parties to the conflict, including the Government of South Sudan. Challenges including levels of violence, physical obstructions to aid delivery and bureaucratic blockages still exist, despite the decree. OCHA reported that, in December 2017 alone, 111 incidents occurred where aid was obstructed, which indicates that the number of incidents has not reduced and that there has been no improvement in access since the decree. The annual total of humanitarian access incidents increased again in 2017 to 1,159, the highest so far.</p><p>We will continue to engage with South Sudan’s leaders at the highest level, asserting pressure together with our international partners, to make clear that they have a direct responsibility to improve access and stop the suffering of their people.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Following the first round of the High Level Revitalisation Forum (RVF), on 21 December all parties to the conflict in South Sudan agreed a Cessation of Hostilities. However, violations have since taken place in many areas, causing civilian as well as combatant casualties. The second round of the RVF is scheduled to commence in February, and the British Government is continuing to encourage all parties to commit to the process with a genuine commitment to peace.</p><p>The conflict is estimated to have led to more than 100,000 deaths since it began in December 2013, but the fragile security situation means that accurate estimates are difficult to produce, and the real number of civilian casualties is likely to be significantly higher. Over 4 million people, a third of the population, have fled their homes, including 2 million who have fled to neighbouring countries. In early 2018, 1.5 million people are expected to be on the brink of famine, more than twice as many as in January 2017.</p>
