star this property answer text <p>Good development takes account of climate change and environmental sustainability, and DFID is increasingly putting climate and environment at the heart of the UK aid agenda in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.</p><p> </p><p>The department’s rules for designing and implementing programmes charge staff with considering sustainability and resilience, including climate change and environmental shocks. As well as informing the appraisal of new projects, staff are expected to manage environmental risks throughout implementation, in line with DFID’s environmental and social safeguards. DFID has a cadre of specialist climate and environment advisers who support teams to meet these requirements.</p><p> </p><p>In July this year, the Government committed in the Green Finance Strategy to align our Official Development Assistance with the Paris Agreement, that is to support low-carbon and climate resilient development. The Prime Minister also recently announced that the UK would be doubling the quantity of International Climate Finance we provide to support developing countries from 2021.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2011, UK aid has provided 26 million people with improved access to clean energy, and helped 57 million people to cope with the effects of climate change. It has also reduced greenhouse gas emissions internationally by 16 million tonnes – the equivalent to taking three million cars off the road for a year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>DFID leads work internationally and across Government to drive efforts to tackle deforestation and combat illegal logging. It does so directly through bilateral programmes aimed at supporting countries and businesses to lock out illegal activities, promote sector reforms, and foster public-private partnerships which catalyse investment into sustainable land use, including environmental and forest protection. DFID also works through multilateral instruments that have broader geographic coverage, particularly through the World Bank’s Forest Investment Programme and the Global Environment Fund.</p><p> </p><p>DFID, together with the international teams in BEIS and Defra, are actively engaged in international policy processes to galvanise the action of other governments and business to stop illegal logging, deforestation and promote sustainable land use.

star this property answer text <p>The Government is firmly committed to delivering the Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 10, reducing Global Inequalities. This commitment is at the heart of DFID’s approach to tackling extreme poverty. DFID works to reduce inequality globally by ensuring that people have access to opportunities and services, prioritising the most vulnerable, those caught in crises, and those most at risk of violence and discrimination. Over 50% of UK aid goes to the most fragile and conflict-affected states.</p><p> </p><p>DFID is tackling inequality across the board through our policy and programming. For example, DFID’s work on decent jobs focuses on working in some of the most challenging environments to help the poorest and most marginalised to gain jobs, increase their incomes and work their way out of poverty. Between 2015/16 and 2018/19, the UK enabled 3.9 million people to raise their incomes or maintain/gain a better job or livelihood. For example, the PrOpCom Mai-Karfi programme has helped over 850,000 beneficiaries increase their income by a total of over £48 million in some of the poorest parts of northern Nigeria.</p><p> </p><p>DFID is a global leader on Gender Equality and Disability Inclusion and published ambitious new strategies on both last year with far reaching commitments. The UK also hosted the Global Summit on Disability Inclusion last year, galvanising global momentum on this neglected area.</p>
