star this property answer text <p>Effective use of the UK Aid budget is central to the Department for International Development’s work. All funding is subject to rigorous due diligence checks and we have strict auditing and monitoring controls in place to ensure all funding is used as it should be. Every project is subject to an annual performance review and a project completion review to ensure that the objectives have been achieved and aid has been delivered to the intended beneficiaries. The Department uses multiple sources of information, including its partnerships with Civil Society, to be confident UK Aid reaches those intended.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We are working at the highest levels with the government, other donors and the UN to improve access and ensure that aid reaches those that need it most. However this is a changing situation and there is not yet access to the conflict areas for a needs assessment. We are working with others to establish a picture of what is happening, where people are and what shape they are in. The UK has long been one of the biggest contributors of humanitarian aid for the displaced population in both Burma and Bangladesh. DFID has already committed £5.9 million to meet the needs of displaced Rohingya and the host communities who support them in Bangladesh. This is reaching 55,188 people with a range of support including food, education and protection of the safety and dignity of the most vulnerable, including women and girls. A further £5 million is being made available to provide urgent assistance to newly arriving refugees with needs such as food, shelter, and water and sanitation. Within Rakhine State we have provided over £30 million in humanitarian assistance since 2012, including food and sanitation for over 126,000 people. The UK Government is deeply concerned about the violence against the Rohingya and other communities in Burma’s Rakhine State, and the plight of thousands fleeing their homes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Since 2012, the UK has provided over £30 million in humanitarian assistance in Rakhine state, including food and sanitation for over 126,000 people. Our partners are delivering humanitarian assistance to more than 80,000 people in the non-conflict zones of Rakhine State. We continue to strongly urge the Burmese authorities to allow the access of aid, food and medication to all affected communities in Rakhine and we are working closely with them to support this. In northern Rakhine DFID partners are ready to provide emergency food assistance to 30,000 people and to treat more than 3,000 severely malnourished children and pregnant women once access is granted. DFID has also committed £10.9 million to meet the needs of displaced Rohingya and the host communities who support them in Bangladesh.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Government is providing £40m in bilateral aid this year to support the Ugandan Government’s response to its refugee population of 1.3m, of whom 1m are from South Sudan. This support is providing food for 1 million people, clean water and nutrition support for more than 200,000, shelter and relief items for 116,000 and vaccinations for 40,000 children. 82% of Uganda’s refugees are women and children. Health care for refugees is provided largely through the existing health system. The main challenges are ensuring adequate infrastructure, human resources and supplies to meet the increased demand for reproductive and maternal health services; and the management of communicable diseases such as malaria.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our assessment is that the crisis in Sri Lanka is being adequately managed through existing mechanisms in Sri Lanka, including the Government’s National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) and humanitarian agencies on the ground, including the Sri Lankan Red Cross Society. The UK provides significant amounts of funding to UN humanitarian emergency agencies (such as UNHCR, UNICEF and WFP), the EU’s humanitarian emergency response agency (ECHO) and the Red Cross, all of whom are contributing to the response. At the moment therefore we do not anticipate that a bilateral response from the UK will be needed. Other countries in the region are also providing assistance, and the US and EU have offered their support.</p> more like this
