star this property answer text <p>DFID-funded partners continue to assess and respond to needs across Aleppo city. Significant numbers of those displaced by the fighting at the end of last year are returning to the east of the city. The UN assesses that there is an urgent need for water and electricity, in addition to food, medicine, shelter and protection support. In the west of the city, our humanitarian partners are providing a range of support to around 398,000 internally displaced persons. Across the city, mains water supply is intermittent due to damage to the Al Khafseh water station. DFID-funded partners are trucking water into Aleppo, installing water tanks, and repairing existing deep wells.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since 2015, DFID has supported the current electoral process in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This involved support to increasing democratic representation of women and youth, raising people’s awareness through civic/electoral education, protecting human rights defenders and broadening the Catholic Church’s electoral observation activities. Since February 2017, we have increased our support to civic education and the training of additional independent electoral observers. In addition, we announced that funding would be made available to update the national electoral roll, if all parties were prepared to hold free, fair and timely elections. That offer remains on the table.</p> more like this

UK bilateral aid is already supporting 25,800 children with lifesaving assistance. We recently announced the new allocation of £175 million for humanitarian support over the next five years (2017-2022) for DRC. This will support a further 220,000 children nationally under the age of 5 with vital nutrition.</p> more like this

For example we fund the International Fund for Agriculture Development’s Adaptation for Smallholder Agriculture Programme (ASAP). This is assisting farmers networks on the promotion of better land and soil management practices and technologies including those developed under our support by the international agriculture research organisation the CGIAR.</p><p>For example in Nigeria ASAP is supporting the establishment and strengthening of community development associations for 200,000 smallholder farmers to adopt agricultural practices that both reduce soil erosion and their risks to climate change.</p><p>We are also funding farmer to farmer training under our country programmes. In Zambia this is focussed on climate smart agriculture and better management of soils. While in Malawi our support on conservation agriculture has helped 60,000 smallholder farmers to increase their crop yields and incomes by 25% on average.</p>
