star this property answer text <p>The UK is playing its part in ending hunger and undernutrition through a substantial portfolio of agricultural and other economic development programmes, nutrition, agricultural research, social safety nets, resilience and humanitarian response interventions; through DFID’s bilateral programmes as well as support to multilateral institutions. But we are aware that more needs to be done if we are to end hunger by 2030, and the new report confirms the urgency. This is why we are discussing opportunities with partners for scaled-up and improved global interventions, to help reverse the negative trend on global hunger, including the German-initiated proposal for a major SDG2 moment in 2020.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is committed to supporting entrepreneurship in Africa to grow local economies, create jobs, reduce poverty and support sustainable development. Last summer, the PM announced that CDC Group, the UK’s Development Finance Institution, would invest up to £3.5 billion in businesses in Africa over four years (2018 to 2021). CDC has already committed £1.9bn in Africa over the last 3 years (2016-2018). CDC is invested in 698 different companies in Africa, directly supporting 370,000 jobs.</p><p>Through CDC and other country specific initiatives, we will mobilise a further £4 billion of private investment for Africa. This investment will allow businesses to grow, produce goods and services for local people, generate income and tax revenues, and help address the financing gap for meeting the Sustainable Development Goals.</p><p>In January next year, the UK will convene an Africa Investment Summit to further promote investment in Africa and to strengthen the partnership with UK investors and companies.</p>

DFID has a zero-tolerance policy to the diversion of UK aid funds and seeks to minimise the risks to ensure life-saving assistance reaches those who need it most.</p><p>We do this by only channelling support through organisations with a strong record of delivering and monitoring assistance, such as UN agencies and international NGOs. All of DFID’s partners and programmes are also subject to rigorous and regular due diligence to ensure that UK aid goes directly to those who need it most. Moreover, we fund an independent monitoring programme that provides third-party verification of results that partners have reported to back to DFID.</p> more like this

Our support to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is underpinned by a Memorandum of Understanding which requires the PA to commit to adhere to the principle of non-violence and to tackle language and avoid actions that could incite violence or hatred. We have held meetings with the PA that will inform the 2019 assessment, which we are currently finalising. The UK regularly raises allegations of incitement in the education sector in our conversations with the PA, and had a detailed discussion on this topic as recently as 21 March 2019.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DFID has agreed that Search for Common Ground (SFCG) should select the research partner through a closed selection process because the processes involved in an open competition would place sensitive information about existing programme activities into the public domain. Our risk assessment indicates that this information could be used to target future programme activities, individual participants, or local staff involved in the management of the programme, and so we took this decision in order to uphold the aid principle to do no harm.</p><p> </p><p>DFID received the bids from SFCG on 17 March 2019, and the evaluation panel comprehensively reviewed the bids and concluded that they did not sufficiently address the scope of work required for the People for Peaceful Change research piece. DFID is currently in the middle of agreeing an alternative option to effectively deliver a comprehensive and robust research element to this programme. We will release an interim update on the research piece to update MPs by the end of April.</p>
