star this property answer text <p>DFID supports private sector innovation and investment in value chains and markets for nutritious foods. This is done both by offering businesses technical assistance and access to finance for investments, and by working to remove inefficiencies in agri-food value chains. Alongside this, DFID funds research and development of nutritious crops and agricultural technologies and supports their commercial scale-up. DFID also works to strengthen the enabling environment to make it more conducive for companies to invest in nutritious foods and associated inputs, technologies and services.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, DFID supports accountability mechanisms like the Access to Nutrition Index and the Scaling Up Nutrition Civil Society Network to further incentivise more responsible business action on nutrition. DFID’s work in this area gives priority to improving nutrition outcomes for women, adolescents, children under five and other poor people, as set out in the Nutrition Position paper <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/652122/nutrition-paper-2017a.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/652122/nutrition-paper-2017a.pdf</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK remains at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the Syria crisis. To date, the UK has pledged £2.81 billion, including £1.03 billion for humanitarian support inside Syria. UK aid is providing life-saving support to millions of displaced civilians, including those in acute need across northern Syria and in Rukban camp.</p><p> </p><p>In financial year 2018/19, DFID has allocated over £40 million for Northeast Syria. We will also expect to provide approximately £87 million for activities in Northwest Syria. Our support in Idlib governorate alone has meant that approximately 572,000 people were provided with access to safe water and 500,000 people received medical consultations between January and June 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Between December 2016 and November 2018, DFID provided £4.14 million for essential humanitarian assistance, including water and health services, to those in acute need in Rukban camp. Despite the regime’s continued and deliberate obstruction of lifesaving aid, DFID funded partners provided safe water and hygiene kits to 50,000 people and vaccines to 5,000 children under the age of 5 in 2018.</p>

DFID is a leading supporter of the effort to meet the World Health Organisation (WHO) 2020 targets, including a 40% reduction in malaria cases and deaths. We are the second largest donor, contributing 16% of the global spend on malaria control and elimination, with the rest coming from other donors, governments of endemic countries, and the private sector. Funding assessments are conducted by WHO. The estimated global spend on malaria control and elimination in 2015 was US$ 2.9 billion; and the estimated need to meet the targets is US$ 6.4 billion per year by 2020.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Malaria is bad for business, investment and trade. It results in people having to take time off work because of illness, worker absenteeism, and reduced worker productivity. These effects slow economic growth in malaria-endemic countries and have an impact on their ability to trade with countries including the UK. Reducing malaria creates healthier, more productive workforces and generates benefits for entire economies, businesses, and individuals.</p><p>The World Health Organisation estimates that global gains in lives saved, due to efforts to tackle malaria, were valued at US$2040 billion, which equates to 3.6% of the total gross domestic product (GDP) of malaria affected countries in 2015.</p> more like this

We have, however, examined all options as part of our determination to do everything we can to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.</p><p> </p><p>Airdrops, manned or using drones, are not capable of meeting either the scale of needs or delivering many of the kinds of aid that could address the priority needs that we see in Syria (e.g. safe drinking water, health support). Furthermore, we judge that such an operation would carry a high level of risk because the consent is needed of those who control the airspace and those on the ground that could threaten aircraft. There is nothing to suggest that the Assad regime would provide such consent, given that it continues to use the denial of aid as a weapon of war.</p> more like this
