star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The UK's £3.87 billion International Climate Fund (ICF), managed by DFID, aims, amongst other things, to prevent climate induced migration in two ways. Firstly, by providing support for emissions reductions to limit the levels of climate change. This is by far the most effective way of reducing the numbers of people displaced by climate change.</p><p> </p><p>Secondly, providing 50% of ICF funds to help over 20 million of the most climate vulnerable people adapt to the impacts of climate change and avoid being displaced. For example; reducing the impacts of floods and droughts, introducing climate resilient crops, and providing insurance against climate induced crop failures.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Our education programmes encourage the adoption of integrated school improvement plans, which include clean water and sanitation as essential elements to prevent disease, promote hygienic practice and enable access to education.</p><p>Girls may be particularly disadvantaged when adequate WASH facilities are not available; in addition in some circumstances the availability of water can boost incentives for regular school attendance. The Girls' Education Challenge include activities to improve access to water and sanitation, such as building toilets, providing sanitary towels and working with the local government to reinforce sanitary guidelines. Each project identifies the key barriers to girls attending school and learning - in the very challenging contexts in which projects operate this often includes access to clean water. Projects generally work with communities to ensure WASH facilities are in place and well-maintained, robust monitoring system ensure that plans are implemented and represent good value for money.</p><p>In Sierra Leone, we have supported 839 primary schools to receive the water and toilet facilities they need during the post-Ebola recover phase. We intend to provide an additional 190 schools with water points and toilets; as a result an additional 40,000 children will have access to safe water and sanitation.</p><p>We finance the UNICEF implemented programme to Accelerate Sanitation and Water for All in 9 Neglected Off-Track Countries, which has reached 1221 schools and created an improved learning environment for an estimated 750,000 school children. A 2nd phase of this programme is anticipated to reach 1000 more schools, where the need is most acute.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>There is limited evidence on the relationship between clean water and sanitation in schools and school attendance. A systematic review funded by DFID in 2011 found insufficient evidence to demonstrate this link. A more recent review (2015) found that hand hygiene measures might decrease absence and improve health. One trial, relating only to Kenya, found that provision of hygiene promotion, water treatment and sanitation reduced girls’ absenteeism from school by 58% in some study areas. We do know from experience through our programmes that water and clean, sex-specific toilets can be important factors in school attendance, particularly for adolescent girls. We are therefore funding significant research through SHARE (a consortium led by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) into ways of maximising the impacts of water, sanitation and hygiene investments on health and school attendance.</p> more like this
