||<p>Following the International Development Secretary’s announcement of £100 million
at United Nations General Assembly, total United Kingdom funding in response to the
humanitarian crisis in Syria and the region now stands at £700 million. Of this, over
50 per cent has been allocated to projects managed by non-governmental organisations.
Due to the structure of our funding, the fluidity of the situation, and the resulting
need for flexibility, it is not possible to give an exact breakdown of the amount
assigned to such projects, however we remain committed to supporting capacity building
of local civil society in the longer term.</p><p> </p>
