star this property answer text <p>The UK has a zero-tolerance approach to fraud and robust controls against the diversion of aid to ensure that funds are used only for their intended purpose. These include due diligence assessments of our partners, mapping of funds through the delivery chain, regular programme monitoring and annual audits.</p><p> </p><p>DFID’s programme <em>Supporting Economic Empowerment and Development in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (SEED OPTs)</em> has several components, working on trade facilitation and customs, water and energy, and helping the PA and Israel to abide by their obligations under the Paris Protocol. Work with the Palestinian Authority in the water and energy sectors will be channelled through The World Bank Partnership for Infrastructure Development in the West Bank and Gaza Multi Donor Trust Fund. Through this framework, funds will flow from the trust fund to dedicated accounts that will be managed by the PA in accordance with rules established by the World Bank.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside a range of other safeguards, all components will be subject to financial audits. The terms of reference of the audits will vary depending on the component, however all independent financial audits provide assurance to DFID that the expenditure of funds will only be on agreed programme activities. The overall DFID OPTs portfolio is also subject to the regular audit cycle of DFID’s Internal Audit Department and the National Audit Office.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is concerned by allegations of incitement in the Palestinian Authority (PA) curriculum, and Minister of State Alistair Burt raised these issues with the PA Minister for Education again, on 21 January 2019. The PA Minister confirmed that he was willing to take into account the findings of an expert textbook review.

star this property answer text <p>DFID has agreed that Search for Common Ground (SFCG) should select the research partner through a closed selection process because the processes involved in an open competition would place sensitive information about existing programme activities into the public domain. Our risk assessment indicates that this information could be used to target future programme activities, individual participants, or local staff involved in the management of the programme, and so we took this decision in order to uphold the aid principle to do no harm.</p><p> </p><p>DFID received the bids from SFCG on 17 March 2019, and the evaluation panel comprehensively reviewed the bids and concluded that they did not sufficiently address the scope of work required for the People for Peaceful Change research piece. DFID is currently in the middle of agreeing an alternative option to effectively deliver a comprehensive and robust research element to this programme. We will release an interim update on the research piece to update MPs by the end of April.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK strongly condemns any language or actions that could stir up hatred and prejudice. Our support to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is underpinned by a Memorandum of Understanding which requires the PA to commit to adhere to the principle of non-violence and to tackle language and avoid actions that could incite violence or hatred. We have held meetings with the PA that will inform the 2019 assessment, which we are currently finalising. The UK regularly raises allegations of incitement in the education sector in our conversations with the PA, and had a detailed discussion on this topic as recently as 21 March 2019.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The meeting was successful in raising international awareness, coordinating support and increasing funding for the Cylone Response including reconstruction. Following the meeting a number of donors substantially increased their support. The World Bank have set out plans for a regional operation, covering Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. This will focus on “building back better” and climate resilient infrastructure. The UK also welcomes the news that Mozambique plans to host a reconstruction conference in the coming months. On 3 May, the World Bank announced that it had mobilised over half a billion dollars in new resources to help people in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.</p> more like this

Using existing crisis mechanisms, both countries’ governments have led on the preparedness and response. The UK has not received any formal requests for support from either Government.</p><p> </p><p>No discussions have been held between the International Development Secretary and the Government of Bangladesh in response to this situation. The DFID Bangladesh team was, however, in close contact with the Government during and immediately following Cyclone Fani. Given the Government response and the limited impact of the cyclone in Bangladesh, the Government did not seek funding or other help from DFID.</p> more like this
