star this property answer text <p>Tackling malnutrition is an important part of the Department for International Development’s work in Rwanda. It is delivered through nutrition-specific interventions in programmes on early childhood development and stunting. It is also integrated into broader interventions such as those on agriculture and social protection, for example through nutrition and child sensitive cash transfers and investment in fortified foods. A new research programme will generate evidence on what works to strengthen nutrition service delivery at scale. DFID’s support for nutrition in Rwanda over the last three years has reached 560,000 children under five (180,000 of whom are children under two) and 1.1 million women of reproductive age (of whom 680,000 are pregnant or lactating women).</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Yemen remains the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with nearly 80% of the entire population, over 24 million people, requiring some form of humanitarian assistance. More than 20 million people in Yemen do not have reliable access to food and almost 10 million people face extreme food shortages.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is providing £200 million in response to this humanitarian crisis this financial year, bringing the total UK commitment to Yemen to £770 million since the conflict began in 2015. This support is meeting the immediate food needs of more than 1 million Yemenis each month, treating 70,000 children for malnutrition and providing over 1 million people with improved water supply and basic sanitation.</p><p> </p><p>We are clear that a political settlement is the only way to fully address the humanitarian crisis and we encourage further constructive engagement from all parties to achieve this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DFID is concerned by the severe food insecurity in East Africa and has taken early action through its substantial portfolio of humanitarian support and longer-term responses to tackling chronic hunger. According to Save the Children nearly 13 million people across the Horn of Africa, of whom 50% are children, now face critical levels of hunger owing to insufficient levels of rain in 2019 and earlier years. Prevailing dry conditions across the region have led to the deterioration of farmland and pastures, loss of livestock, sharply increased food prices, and reduction of the availability of water.</p><p> </p><p>In Ethiopia, DFID supports the Government of Ethiopia’s Productive Safety Net Programme that reaches 8 million chronically food insecure people in drought affected regions. The UK remains at the forefront of the humanitarian response in Somalia, delivering emergency aid to over 1 million people and supporting up to 1.5 million people through long-term resilience projects. In Kenya, DFID supports the Government of Kenya’s Hunger Safety Net Programme, which also provides cash transfers to some of the poorest households.</p><p> </p><p>Our work on humanitarian early warning systems raises awareness of crises where food security is deteriorating. We also prioritise longer-term responses to support food security, including through our agricultural programmes and the UK’s global leadership on tackling climate change and its impacts.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is proud to be the largest bilateral donor to the Global Partnership for Education, which has supported 22.2 million children’s education since 2015. This can include providing nutrition to children, often in the early years of life, depending on the needs within the country. Examples of these grants can be found on the Global Partnership for Education website: <a href="https://www.globalpartnership.org/search/site/nutrition" target="_blank">https://www.globalpartnership.org/search/site/nutrition</a>. The UK Government is a global leader on nutrition; we have reached 60.3 million people with nutrition services in 25 countries since 2015.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Access to water, sanitation and hygiene is a key part of tackling undernutrition. For example, the act of infant and child feeding needs good personal hygiene – hand washing with soap and water, and good food hygiene. Since 2015, DFID has helped over 51 million poor people in Africa and Asia get access to a drinking water supply or toilet for the first time.</p><p> </p><p>DFID also supports programmes where water supplies are developed for multiple uses, which include nutrition objectives. For example, a DFID-supported project in Madagascar has partnered with the agricultural sector to develop water supplies for domestic use and for irrigating market gardens, to improve nutrition and build resilience to future shocks.</p> more like this
