star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to achieving the Paris Agreement climate goals and is increasingly putting environment and climate at the heart of UK Aid. The majority of UK Official Development Assistance for energy either supports renewable energy, helps governments to improve sector policy and governance, or supports energy research. UK Aid has helped over 17 million people with improved access to clean energy.</p><p> </p><p>We do not provide direct assistance for coal-fired generation.</p><p> </p><p>For other fossil fuels our approach is to support their development where there is a clear developmental need and as part of a transition to low-carbon economies. In assessing new support, we will ensure that assistance does not undermine the ambition in a country’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and that an appropriate carbon price is used in the appraisal of the programme.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Copenhagen conference on 19-20 November took stock of progress in the first year of implementation of the Somali New Deal Compact. We called for political stability, continued progress on building peace and stability and the avoidance of further conflict. We also called for greater transparency and accountability in public financial management and the awarding of concessions, and a focus on resource sharing agreements as a key building block of the state formation process required to establish a stable Somali federation. We also emphasised the importance of ensuring the full inclusion and empowerment of women and girls in Somalia and improvements in access to justice. These requirements will provide the framework for our aid relationship with Somalia as we move forwards into the second year of the implementation of the compact.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK worked hard to secure a comprehensive standalone goal on gender equality and women and girls’ empowerment in the Global Goals, and to integrate gender equality throughout the remaining goals. The new Global Goals will help us to influence others, achieve even more, and are critical to achieving transformational change to the lives of girls and women across the globe. The UK has put women and girls at the heart of our international development and humanitarian work. The UK is committed to helping 6.5 million more girls to go to school over the next 5 years. This programme of work will include tackling the difficult issues that keep girls out of school like FGM and child marriage.</p><br /><p>The UK led efforts across the globe to ensure that a target to end violence against women and girls (VAWG) formed part of the Global Goals. We are now focused on seeing this target implemented. This includes stepping up DFID action to build the evidence base for what works to prevent violence, which will help to convince others that effective action is possible. It also means DFID working with international partners to ensure financial and technical resources are mobilised to tackle VAWG, and working with national and local partners in developing countries to transform social norms to tackle the discriminatory attitudes and behaviours that are the root causes of VAWG.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has produced detailed assessments of the effect of global warming. Its study on Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability contained in the 2014 Fifth Assessment Report (available here: <a href="http://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg2/" target="_blank">http://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg2/</a>) makes clear how the impacts of climate change are expected to slow down economic growth, erode food security and make poverty reduction more difficult. The report notes that higher levels of warming increase the chance of severe and pervasive impacts.</p><br /><p>The poorest and most vulnerable will be hit first and hardest by climate change and the World Bank has estimated that without action to address climate change it could result in an additional 100 million people living in extreme poverty by 2030. The UK Government is committed to tackling poverty and climate change through its International Climate Fund, which the Prime Minister has announced will increase by 50% over the next five years.</p>
