We therefore do not see that attempting to define a separate category of finance for loss and damage as useful or practical. Of the £5.8bn on climate finance we have committed to spend from 2016-2021 the UK aims to spend 50% on adaptation and 50% on mitigation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>For those offenders sentenced to an immediate custodial sentence of six months or less between 1<sup>st</sup> January 2017 and 30<sup>th</sup> September 2018, 339 offenders had 20 previous custodial sentences of six months or less, 20 offenders had 50 previous custodial sentences of six months or less and 1 offender had 100 previous custodial sentences of six months or less.</p><p>There is a strong case to abolish sentences of six months or less, with some exceptions. We are exploring options to restrict the use of short custodial sentences, but we have not at this stage reached any conclusions.</p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 involved around 350,000 sentencing occasions over 4 years and used 130 different variables to construct matched groups of offenders and examine the effect of short sentences relative to community sentences. This study found a reduction of around 3 percentage points in proven reoffences if offenders receiving sentences of less than 12 months were to get a community order instead. This is statistically significant and equates to around 30,000 proven reoffences in total over a one-year period. This means fewer victims of crime.</p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p>

If the court makes a community order that includes a curfew requirement, it must also impose an electronic monitoring requirement (unless there are particular reasons for not doing so), the purpose of which is to promote and monitor compliance. A curfew can be imposed for a daily maximum of 16 hours per day and for the maximum requirement duration of 12 months.</p><p> </p><p>The National Probation Service can commence enforcement proceedings for alleged violations of a curfew. If enforcement proceedings are commenced and the court finds that the offender has breached their curfew, one of the sanctions the court can apply is to make the order more onerous which could include varying the curfew by extending the daily curfew hours or the overall length of the curfew requirement.</p>
