star this property answer text <p>The UK remains concerned by the conditions faced by migrants in Libyan detention centres. We have consistently raised this issue with the Government of National Accord, including during a recent visit by the International Development Secretary. The UK continues to provide humanitarian support to vulnerable refugees and migrants in Libya, including through over £5m of funding for UN agencies and non-governmental organisations. UK assistance to the Libyan Coastguard has been delivered through financial contributions and the provision of two military training teams to Operation Sophia’s (the EU Naval Operation set up in response to the Mediterranean Migration Crisis) Coastguard Training Task. This training aims to equip the Libyan Coastguard with the skills required to manage search and rescue and conduct counter smuggling/trafficking activities properly, whilst respecting human rights. The training also includes sessions on seamanship. These efforts are part of a comprehensive approach to migration that includes supporting assisted voluntary returns, tackling people smuggling and encouraging economic development in source countries.</p>

Contributors alongside DFID for the first phase of the programme were Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Canada and Denmark. The current phase of the programme which will continue to have a focus on marginalised communities including the Manjo will be supported by Ireland, Sweden and Norway.</p><p> </p><p>At this time we believe the Ethiopian government is taking steps to address the challenges which the Manjo and other marginalised groups face, and that continued engagement in-country alongside our international partners is the best course of action. We do not plan to raise the issue in the United Nations at present.</p> more like this

Gender inclusion forms an integral part of provincial and national education programmes. Our programmes have supported 4.7 million girls to complete primary school in Pakistan and 2.7 million girls to complete secondary school in Punjab. Since 2000, DFID has spent £914 million on education in Pakistan, including £122.7m in 2017/18. We are not able to disaggregate this spend by gender. This support is mainly focussed on schools in the Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Sindh with our two largest sector reform programmes operating in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab. We have supported a range of actors to deliver girl’s education including: the Governments of KP and Punjab; private sector providers; and not for profit and non-state actors.</p> more like this

Inclusion and respect for minority communities forms an integral part of our provincial and national education programmes in Pakistan. For example, the KESP programme in KP, which aims to improve learning outcomes for all children, has an increasing focus on girls and marginalised groups. Our work to promote inclusion includes: training nearly 100,000 teachers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Punjab in equity and inclusion; funding the Alif Ailaan education campaign which focusses on religious minorities; and engaging with education civil society organisations to champion issues of inclusion and raise these with government.
