star this property answer text <p>The humanitarian situation in Idlib is extremely serious. DFID continues to closely monitor the situation in Northwest Syria, and we are concerned about the impact of recent escalations of violence on civilians. So far this financial year we have allocated £40 million in support for the region, and are keeping this under active review as the situation on the ground develops.</p><p> </p><p>Our support in this region continues to provide Syrians with shelter, clean water and sanitation, mental health services, as well as aiding health workers and facilities that have been affected by escalating violence. DFID partners are working tirelessly to meet the growing needs among displaced people.</p><p> </p><p>In 2018 alone, DFID support in Idlib provided approximately 836,000 people with access to clean drinking water, 873,000 medical consultations, 69,000 food rations and access to formal education for 110,000 children.</p> more like this

This includes children forcibly recruited during armed conflicts, sexually abused, or exploited through other forms of forced labour or hazardous work. Over 24,000 of the most vulnerable children will benefit directly and over 400,000 people are expected to benefit indirectly through increased awareness and improvements in legal systems.</p>

star this property answer text <p>DFID leads work internationally and across Government to drive efforts to tackle deforestation and combat illegal logging. It does so directly through bilateral programmes aimed at supporting countries and businesses to lock out illegal activities, promote sector reforms, and foster public-private partnerships which catalyse investment into sustainable land use, including environmental and forest protection. DFID also works through multilateral instruments that have broader geographic coverage, particularly through the World Bank’s Forest Investment Programme and the Global Environment Fund.</p><p> </p><p>DFID, together with the international teams in BEIS and Defra, are actively engaged in international policy processes to galvanise the action of other governments and business to stop illegal logging, deforestation and promote sustainable land use. Most recently, the UK led efforts at the UN Climate Action Summit, to agree actions to build natural resilience to climate change.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is firmly committed to delivering the Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 10, reducing Global Inequalities. This commitment is at the heart of DFID’s approach to tackling extreme poverty. DFID works to reduce inequality globally by ensuring that people have access to opportunities and services, prioritising the most vulnerable, those caught in crises, and those most at risk of violence and discrimination. Over 50% of UK aid goes to the most fragile and conflict-affected states.</p><p> </p><p>DFID is tackling inequality across the board through our policy and programming. For example, DFID’s work on decent jobs focuses on working in some of the most challenging environments to help the poorest and most marginalised to gain jobs, increase their incomes and work their way out of poverty. Between 2015/16 and 2018/19, the UK enabled 3.9 million people to raise their incomes or maintain/gain a better job or livelihood. For example, the PrOpCom Mai-Karfi programme has helped over 850,000 beneficiaries increase their income by a total of over £48 million in some of the poorest parts of northern Nigeria.</p><p> </p><p>DFID is a global leader on Gender Equality and Disability Inclusion and published ambitious new strategies on both last year with far reaching commitments. The UK also hosted the Global Summit on Disability Inclusion last year, galvanising global momentum on this neglected area.</p>
