star this property answer text <p>The Government is firmly committed to delivering the Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 10, reducing Global Inequalities. This commitment is at the heart of DFID’s approach to tackling extreme poverty. DFID works to reduce inequality globally by ensuring that people have access to opportunities and services, prioritising the most vulnerable, those caught in crises, and those most at risk of violence and discrimination. Over 50% of UK aid goes to the most fragile and conflict-affected states.</p><p> </p><p>DFID is tackling inequality across the board through our policy and programming. For example, DFID’s work on decent jobs focuses on working in some of the most challenging environments to help the poorest and most marginalised to gain jobs, increase their incomes and work their way out of poverty. Between 2015/16 and 2018/19, the UK enabled 3.9 million people to raise their incomes or maintain/gain a better job or livelihood. For example, the PrOpCom Mai-Karfi programme has helped over 850,000 beneficiaries increase their income by a total of over £48 million in some of the poorest parts of northern Nigeria.</p><p> </p><p>DFID is a global leader on Gender Equality and Disability Inclusion and published ambitious new strategies on both last year with far reaching commitments. The UK also hosted the Global Summit on Disability Inclusion last year, galvanising global momentum on this neglected area.</p>
