We welcome in particular Goal 1 on ending extreme poverty, Goal 5 on Gender which strongly reflects UK priorities including ending female genital mutilation and early forced marriage, and Goal 16 on peaceful and inclusive societies, good governance, and access to justice.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK welcomed the UN Secretary-General’s Synthesis Report as a useful contribution to the post-2015 negotiations when it was released in December 2014. In particular we welcomed his proposal for six ‘essential elements’ as a way to communicate the agenda in an inspiring and concise way to citizens everywhere. We were also pleased to note his suggestion that the UN System conducts a technical review of the Sustainable Development Goal targets to ensure that they are as implementable as possible.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government does not promote or support abortion on the grounds of gender. The practice of sex selection is not caused by the availability of abortion services or technologies but is a consequence of deep rooted discrimination against women, poverty and cultural preference for sons. Our work on girls' education, women's empowerment, skills and jobs aims to increase the ‘value’ of girls and women in society and therefore tackle the pressures and incentives that drive preferences for male children.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The UK has never supported or funded the one child policy and closed its bilateral aid programme to China in March 2011. In India, our partners are strongly committed to implementing India’s 1994 National Pre-Conception and Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques Regulation Act, which bans the use of medical technologies for sex selection purposes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is providing more than £33 million to the earthquake response in Nepal. This includes £10 million for a new health programme so that children can continue to be immunised, women can deliver babies safely and work can commence on rebuilding up to 1,000 damaged health facilities. This was announced by DFID’s Secretary of State during her visit to Nepal on 19-20 May. Our support has also provided many thousands of needy people and affected communities with access to clean water and essential shelter, and has transported thousands of boxes of food rations and lanterns. Our pre-positioned water, sanitation, and hygiene supplies have also reached thousands of people.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>After the July-August 2014 conflict over 100,000 people were made homeless in Gaza and over 3,300 internally displaced people are still sheltering in UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) collective centres. UK aid is saving lives and providing services but we need to see a more sustainable political solution for Gaza which will address Israel’s legitimate security concerns whilst opening up movement and access and supporting the return of the PA.</p><p> </p><p>The UK was one of the biggest donors to the crisis last summer, providing more than £17 million in immediate humanitarian assistance for those caught up in the conflict. The UK subsequently pledged a further £20 million in early recovery assistance at the Gaza Reconstruction Conference in Cairo. We have already disbursed 80% of the pledge and will disburse the remaining this financial year, focussing largely on getting businesses back to work.</p> more like this
