star this property answer text <p>The UK has engaged in the recent United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) Advisory Commission meetings which include the United States, all main donors and host Governments. The UK has highlighted our concern about the impact on the activities of UNRWA that any unexpected reductions or delays in predicted donor disbursements might have. The United States has consistently been UNRWA’s largest single donor. My officials are working closely with UNRWA and donors on how best to ensure continuity of essential services to Palestinian refugees at this time. The UK remains firmly committed to supporting UNRWA and Palestinian refugees across the Middle East, having so far provided around £50 million in 2017/18.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. The recent escalation in fighting and restrictions on commercial and humanitarian access threaten to push the country into catastrophic famine. The UN estimates that almost 18 million people in Yemen do not have reliable access to food and over 8 million people face extreme food shortages.</p><p> </p><p>The International Development Secretary visited Djibouti and Saudi Arabia in December, where she announced a further £50 million in life-saving UK aid to provide food and fuel for millions of people. This announcement increased our support to Yemen to £205 million overall for this financial year (2017/18) making us the third-largest humanitarian donor to Yemen overall and the second-largest to the UN Humanitarian Appeal.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Development has a zero tolerance approach to UK aid funds being diverted to fund terrorist activities and the UK Government publishes a list of prescribed extremist groups or organisations banned under UK law. Where there are allegations of misuse of aid funds, these are investigated fully by the Department’s specialist Counter Fraud Unit, and funds are always recovered to the fullest extent possible.</p><p>The Department has robust measures in place to protect, prevent, and detect the diversion of aid. Controls are embedded through-out the programme cycle and are continually revised and adapted to meet evolving threats and changes in operational circumstances. The Department has recently strengthened its already rigorous due diligence process and comprehensive risk management framework which requires risks to be identified prior to the disbursement of UK aid.</p> more like this
