unstar this property answer text <p> </p><p>The UK's £3.87 billion International Climate Fund (ICF), managed by DFID, aims, amongst other things, to prevent climate induced migration in two ways. Firstly, by providing support for emissions reductions to limit the levels of climate change. This is by far the most effective way of reducing the numbers of people displaced by climate change.</p><p> </p><p>Secondly, providing 50% of ICF funds to help over 20 million of the most climate vulnerable people adapt to the impacts of climate change and avoid being displaced. For example; reducing the impacts of floods and droughts, introducing climate resilient crops, and providing insurance against climate induced crop failures.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Food businesses have responsibility for producing safe meat. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) makes sure that meat not fit for human consumption does not enter the food chain, through the deployment of staff carrying out official controls or through the work of local authorities nationally. The provision of monitoring, sampling, surveillance and inspection across the links of the food chain are carried out in approved and registered food businesses. The legislation governing the production of meat is set out in various European Union and national regulations.</p><p> </p><p>Key areas of control are:</p><p> </p><p>- enforcement of strict regulatory standards and assessment of records relating to Food Business Operators' food safety management systems;</p><p>- approval and registration of meat premises ensuring that only premises that meet the minimum standards set may operate;</p><p>- identification and labelling, animal health, animal welfare and veterinary hygiene activities;</p><p>- the enforcement of EU and national rules relating to production and processing of meat , and its storage and distribution is assessed through risk based audits and unannounced inspections;</p><p>- a network of veterinary research laboratories following sampling activities to test meat products for veterinary medicine residues, campylobacter etc.;</p><p>- close co-operation with the FSA and other Government Agencies on food safety issues;</p><p>- reporting of food fraud issues and wider cascade of topical areas of concern for focused attention and actions; and</p><p>- reporting of meat rejection results for disease surveillance and assessing the risk with a view to disease eradication and control programmes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In slaughterhouses, official veterinarians carry out checks on live animals presented for slaughter, with inspectors carrying out post-mortem inspection checks of carcases and offal. In accordance with EU and national legislation, only meat that has passed stringent safety checks by the FSA will be health marked and allowed to enter the food chain.</p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>We have not made specific representations on animal welfare in fur farms. However the UK is supportive of international efforts to protect animal welfare. We hosted a high level international conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade in London in February 2014 where the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt hon, Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague) spoke to highlight the importance of action on this issue.</p><p>Over 40 countries, including China participated in the conference, during which, we secured significant commitments, including on the ivory trade, on government procurement of wildlife products, and on treating international wildlife trafficking as a serious organised crime. We are following up with China and other participating countries on this issue.</p><p>Following the conference, Chinese authorities have passed a new law making the consumption of rare wild animals an offence punishable by ten-years in prison.</p> more like this
