star this property answer text <p>I recognise that natural disasters can have a serious impact on affected countries’ ability to service external debts. The Government of Mozambique has not requested consideration for debt relief at this stage, and any consideration of official debt relief would need to be made via the Paris Club of official creditors and done in close coordination with the IMF. The UK Government is not an official creditor to Mozambique.</p><p> </p><p>The UK will continue to work with international partners, including the Paris Club, to explore the potential for more resilient debt-instruments that support faster economic recovery and stability in the international financial system, while preserving access to financing for development.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since 2017 my Department has spent over £49million on programmes that reduce the impact of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW). As set out in the UK’s policy document on mine action, this includes abandoned improvised explosive devices.</p><p>My Department measures the impact of mine action programmes by the amount of land released and available for productive use, rather than the number of devices removed, and through the number of beneficiaries of mine risk education. Programmes deliver life-saving mine risk education sessions to ensure communities living in some of the most heavily contaminated places in the world understand the dangers of landmines and ERW. Since 2017, we have supported over 17,000 mine risk education sessions benefitting nearly 400,000 boys, girls, men and women.</p><p>The mine action programme releases land in some of the most heavily contaminated countries in the world, ensuring communities can to return to their homes, travel safely to school and work, and farm their own land. In Iraq the removal of mines and improvised devices is enabling the return of displaced people to areas liberated from Daesh, where civilians are returning voluntarily to find their homes and public facilities significantly contaminated by abandoned improvised explosive devices.</p><p>The UK also supports national mine action authorities to manage their clearance of their own contamination more efficiently including training staff on quality assurance techniques and improving national mine action databases to make the most effective use of resources and ensure the most vulnerable communities have their land cleared.</p>

star this property answer text <p>DFID’s education policy “Get Children Learning,” launched in February 2018, sets out that the state is the guarantor of quality basic education for all, but need not be the sole financer or provider of education services. In financial year 2016/17 we carried out a one-off exercise to calculate the proportion of DFID’s education spend going to public education. Our conclusion was “<em>DFID invests overwhelmingly in the public sector with over 95% of education funding going to public education”.</em> This was a snapshot of the education portfolio at the time. This calculated education spend on DFID’s bilateral and centrally-managed programmes including those operating in Pakistan, Kenya and Nigeria that provided funding to low cost private schools. To repeat the exercise and provide a year on year breakdown would incur a disproportionate cost. We continue to take a pragmatic approach in our support to education, using a range of delivery partners to provide children with the education they deserve. In some cases this includes for-profit organisations who deliver services through the public education system.</p><p> </p>
