star this property answer text <p>The UK Government uses a range of data sources and publications to inform our policy on how to tackle unsafe abortion, as cited in our published position. The UK Government has used and reported on the Guttmacher Institute estimates in our Single Departmental Plan Family Planning sector page since July 2018.</p><p> </p><p>DFID’s bilateral and multi-country programmes take an integrated approach in order to meet a wide range of women’s reproductive health needs. For example, providing a woman with holistic care for gender-based violence, HIV counselling, safe-abortion care and information on family planning. Because of the integrated nature of this work, it is not possible to provide a break-down of funding on safe abortion services alone. The aim of the UK Government’s work on sexual and reproductive health and rights overseas is to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies and unsafe abortions, increase the use of voluntary family planning, and give women control over their own bodies and lives.</p>

It is clear however that the world is not on track to avoid dangerous climate change and environmental damage. The Secretary of State wants to see what more we can do with the UK’s aid budget and how we can encourage others to take more action. The UN Climate Action Summit in September is a critical moment to increase global ambition and I am pleased that the UK playing a leading role in shaping the agenda on how to build resilience to cope with climate change already locked in.</p> more like this

In Mozambique, which has suffered the worst effects, we have supported the provision of emergency shelter, health and sanitation to the worst-affected populations with an emergency grant of £3m; we are now assessing options for further assistance. In Comoros the UK does not have a permanent presence and we are therefore deferring to partners. The main platform for relief has been the UN CERF Facility, to which the UK is the largest donor.
