Improved automation supports timely action across DWP service areas with clearance routinely completing within 24 hours of receipt. This investment and ongoing focus on preventing multiple letters after the notification of death is proving successful, although it is accepted that there may be cases where external factors compromise this achievement.</p> more like this

This is outlined in DFID’s new Disability Inclusion Strategy (2018-2023) and Education Policy (2018).</p><p> </p><p>DFID supports Syrian refugee children to recover from war through the No Lost Generation Initiative in Lebanon (2016-2020). In the last year, DFID has been supporting the Ministry of Education in the roll-out of a child protection policy in schools, and supported training of school counsellors and school child protection focal points in psychological first aid and support. This enables them to better identify, support and refer children at risk.</p><p> </p><p>Over the last six months, DFID has also worked closely with Education Cannot Wait, the first global fund on education in emergencies, to strengthen mental health and psychosocial support in schools. In May 2019 Education Cannot Wait started a formal partnership with the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Collaborative for Children and Families. As a result, children will be able to access opportunities for healing, recovery and learning in safe and nurturing educational environments in conflict and humanitarian settings.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We do not allocate money from the ICF specifically to raise awareness of climate change in developing countries.</p><p> </p><p>Nearly all developing countries signed the 2015 Paris Agreement and they continue to be active in the international climate negotiations. The Least Developed Country group (a bloc of 48 nations particularly vulnerable to climate change) were among those calling on the United Nations Secretary General to convene a climate summit in September this year to raise global ambition on tackling climate change. The UK and Egypt, alongside Malawi, Bangladesh, the Netherlands and St Lucia, are leading work to secure international commitments to take more action to help countries cope with climate change impacts.</p><p> </p><p>Developing country governments are already taking action themselves. For example, Bangladesh has introduced a National Resilience Programme to ensure it has the capacity to respond to extreme weather events, and the UK is assisting them with that. Bangladesh is one of the global leaders in cutting the cost and impact of natural disasters.</p>

We estimate that UK-funded assistance provided since August 2017 has reached most of the 1.3 million refugees and vulnerable host community members targeted by the international humanitarian Joint Response Plan.

star this property answer text <p>Facial recognition technology takes two main forms. The first compares an image of an unknown person (for example caught on CCTV committing a crime, reviewed after the event) against a database of facial images of people who have been arrested. All police forces use the Police National Database facial search facility. <br> <br>The second form is live facial recognition (LFR), which compares images of passers-by taken from live cameras with images on a watch list (a database of suspects). Possible matches produced by LFR systems are always checked by a human operator before deciding what, if any, action to take. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and South Wales Police (SWP) are piloting LFR. The pilots are important to test this technology, which has the potential to improve public safety. SWP have been carrying out trials since May 2017. MPS completed a series of ten pilots in February 2019.</p><p>Both forces have commissioned independent evaluations of their trials. Cardiff University has published its evaluation of South Wales Police’s trials between May 2017 and March 2018. Essex University will shortly be publishing their review of the Metropolitan Police Service’s trials. MPS will consider next steps in the light of this review. The Law Enforcement Facial Images and New Biometric Modalities Oversight and Advisory Board oversees the police use of LFR, the retention of custody images, and emerging new biometrics. The Board’s minutes are published on GOV.UK</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is currently working with retailers and the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) to encourage their efforts to reduce waste and to explore the introduction of plastic-free supermarket initiatives in which fresh food is sold loose, giving consumers the choice.</p><p> </p><p>The government recently consulted on reforms to the packaging producer responsibility system to ensure that packaging producers meet the full cost of managing and recycling packaging waste. This provides a strong incentive to producers to reduce the amount of packaging they use and to make packaging that is more easily collected and recycled. Plastic food packaging serves important purposes such as protecting food, providing important storage information, extending the shelf life and decreasing food waste.</p><p> </p><p>However there are opportunities where offering food loose may help to reduce plastic waste whilst not impacting on shelf life. WRAP have published a technical report on the evidence for providing fresh produce loose and this will inform future guidance. And industry is already taking action. In April last year, WRAP and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation launched their world-leading UK Plastics Pact, with support from the Government, and all the major supermarkets have signed up to it. The Pact brings these organisations together with four key targets for 2025 that aim to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated. Which include action to eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use plastic packaging items. Our proposed reforms will support supermarkets in achieving those targets.</p><p> </p>
