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

It states the importance of SRFIs being located near the business markets they will serve – major urban centres, or groups of centres. The NN-NPS states that to facilitate modal shift from road to rail, a network of SRFIs is needed across the regions to serve regional, sub-regional and cross-regional markets with good connectivity with both the road and strategic rail freight network.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​Nepal was elected to the UN Human Rights Council on 16 October. This is an important opportunity for Nepal to demonstrate its commitment to fundamental freedoms and human rights in Nepal.</p><p>Since then, on 26 October, I led a debate in the House of Commons on freedom of religion and belief, during which human rights in Nepal were raised. I subsequently wrote to the Prime Minister of Nepal expressing concerns over the recently passed Criminal Code. I have also raised this matter with the Nepali Ambassador in London, and our Ambassador in Nepal discussed this in early October with the Nepali Prime Minister. There are many positive elements in the Code, including criminalising torture, enforced disappearances, forced labour and slavery. However, some wording could be open to misinterpretation and potentially prevent legitimate expression of religion or belief for fear of prosecution. Both I and the British Embassy in Kathmandu have urged the Government of Nepal to ensure the final implementation of the Code does not curtail freedom of religious belief, and meets Nepal's international human rights obligations and international standards.</p>

Its use for disaster relief in the Caribbean was intended to supplement the capability of RFA MOUNTS BAY, which was prepositioned in the Caribbean for hurricane season and is better suited to Humanitarian and Disaster Relief operations and responded to the situation in Anguilla less than 24 hours after Hurricane Irma struck. Plans for the use of Defence assets for future disaster relief operations remain under constant reviews across Government. Any decisions to adjust plans will be informed by the cross-Government lessons learned process from the UK's immediate response to Hurricanes Irma and Maria, as well as the ongoing National Security Capability Review.</p> more like this
