star this property answer text <p>A June 2019 study by the Overseas Development Institute found that refugees felt that their lives would first and foremost be improved through education, then better living conditions, then the ability to support themselves. The study also describes the Rohingya people’s immediate concerns affecting their quality of life, including shelter conditions, lack of firewood or stoves, issues with healthcare, water, sanitation and hygiene and protection support, inadequate food and insufficient supplies.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has committed £256 million in funding since August 2017 to improve many aspects of daily life including food security, nutrition, shelter, health, and education. The UK engages regularly with the Government of Bangladesh to discuss the need to improve refugees’ access to education, skills and livelihoods. While progress has been made, life within the camps remains challenging for the Rohingya and the uncertainty about their future is a difficult burden to bear. The UK has supported regular surveys conducted by Ground Truth Solutions to help the international community better understand the changing perspectives of the Rohingya in Bangladesh.</p>

Over the past three months, the average total commercial and humanitarian imports into Yemen met 90% of the country’s food needs and almost 80% of fuel needs.</p><p> </p><p>We are acutely aware of the restrictions humanitarian actors face delivering aid across Yemen, particularly in Houthi-controlled areas. This includes bureaucratic obstacles such as long waits for visas and permits to start aid projects, as well as multiple permissions required to travel through checkpoints.</p><p> </p><p>In response to these challenges, former Minister of State, Alistair Burt recently hosted a telephone conference call with the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Lise Grande, and the key UN agencies operating in Yemen where he discussed the steps needed from donors to lobby for better access as well as the work needed from the UN to ensure the humanitarian response prioritises those most in need.</p><p> </p><p>The UK continues to raise humanitarian concerns calling on both parties to comply with UN Security Council Resolution 2451 by facilitating safe, rapid, and unhindered access for both the humanitarian response and commercial supplies.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK and our coalition partners are doing all we can to minimise the risks of civilian impact of coalition military action. The UN has reported that airstrikes have caused some local-level internal displacement, but the ongoing conflict is the main cause of displacement of civilians. In both Syria and Iraq, the UN carries out regular humanitarian contingency planning exercises, including preparing for the potential impact of military operations. UK humanitarian advisors on the ground are also monitoring the situation closely and will continue to work closely with the UN, international partners and the Government of Iraq to ensure that effective plans and coordination structures are in place to respond to a variety of scenarios.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is also providing substantial humanitarian assistance for those affected by the conflict. To date the UK has pledged £800 million to respond to Syria crisis and a further £39.5 million for those affected by conflict in Iraq.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>Poor seasonal rainfall early in 2014 in parts of Western Angola has affected the harvest and food availability there. However, throughout most of the country production is considered to be good and expected to be higher than normal. This has helped to maintain reasonable food prices for urban populations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government has not had recent bilateral discussions with the Government of Angola regarding the food situation. The Government of Angola is leading the food assistance programme and is best placed to prepare for and lead such a response with the support of UN partners. The Government of Angola has set up an Inter-ministerial Commission to tackle the drought. The Government of Angola is also embarking on infrastructure projects, such as water supply projects, to mitigate drought impact in the future.</p><p> </p> more like this
