star this property answer text <p>DFID’s Strategic Vision for Gender Equality underlines the need to focus on each stage of the lifecycle if we are to achieve our ambitions to leave no-one behind. This includes recognising the contribution of older women and considering them in efforts to empower women economically.</p><p>Better data and understanding of the situation of older women is essential for tackling the poverty and discrimination they face. DFID is investing in improving collection and use of disaggregated data (by sex, age and disability) to enable us to empower and include those who are too often invisible or face additional barriers to escaping poverty, such as older people. For example, we have led the way on the Inclusive Data Charter Action Plan and worked with others to improve the international development system on disaggregated and inclusive data.</p><p>The UK is also committed to shining a spotlight on the vulnerabilities of widows globally, including raising awareness of the discrimination and abuse often faced by older widows. At the Commission on the Status of Women in March, the UK helped secure the first ever United Nations-level recognition of the need to invest in adequate measures to protect and support widows.</p>

star this property answer text <p>DFID believes that no one should face the indignity of extreme, absolute, chronic poverty, and as part of our commitment to <em>Leave No One Behind</em>, we will put the needs of the most excluded first. This means challenging the social barriers that deny people opportunity and limit their potential. Older people can experience a range of complex barriers and face multiple exclusions. They are more likely than any other age group to have disabilities.</p><p> </p><p>Social protection mechanisms can play a crucial part in supporting the economic empowerment of older people. For example, the UK has been proud to partner with the Government of Uganda over the last 10 years to deliver a Senior Citizen Grant. The programme currently supports 168,340 older people each year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has consistently made clear to the Sudanese authorities that there must be justice and accountability for crimes committed by the former regime, including the violence against peaceful protesters on 3 June. We welcome the Sudanese commitment to an independent investigation into these events and urge the Sudanese authorities to deliver this swiftly.</p><p>We regularly discuss the human rights situation in Sudan and the issue of accountability with Sudanese counterparts. Lord (Tariq) Ahmad of Wimbledon, Minister of State responsible for human rights, did so with the Sudanese Ambassador to London on 5 August, and the UK Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva did so with the Sudanese Minister for Justice in the margins of the September UN Human Rights Council. We continue to do so regularly at official level. This is underpinned by our statement at the Human Rights Council on 25 September, where we publicly welcomed the formation of an independent committee of inquiry into the events of 3 June and urged all parties to ensure these investigations are independent and transparent.</p>

star this property answer text <p>DFID has reviewed the report and welcomes its focus on long-term, systemic change which is central to DFID’s approach. Women and girls’ health and education are a top priority for DFID. At the UN General Assembly the Secretary of State announced £600 million in new funding for family planning supplies for women and girls in the world’s poorest countries. This week the UK announced a £515 million package of support for education. DFID is committed to generational transformation for the world’s poorest and already spends 57% of its bilateral budget on fragile and conflict affected states. The UK will host the Vaccine Alliance pledging conference next year to help create a healthier world. I welcome the report acknowledging DFID’s high standards of transparency and effectiveness. Other departments are making good progress and DFID continues to support.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Between 2009 and 2018 DFID’s spend on education doubled from almost £500 million to nearly £1 billion. The Prime Minister has publicly stated that education, particularly girls’ education, is a priority for the UK. He announced £90 million for education in emergencies and protracted crisis including £85 million to Education Cannot Wait at the G7 Summit, and last week the UK announced a £515 million package of support for education, including a £300 million pledge for the new International Finance Facility for Education. In total, these announcements will support 6.3 million girls. Alongside our commitment to the Global Partnership for Education, the UK is now the leading bilateral donor to all three major multilateral education funds and continues to be one of the leading bilateral donors to basic education. At the UN General Assembly last week, the UK has been calling for others to step up and follow our lead.</p> more like this
