star this property answer text <p>Future funding and programming arrangements for the Overseas Territories post-2020 will be considered as part of the next Spending Review which is expected to take place in 2019. When reviewing future options careful consideration will be given to any loss of European Union funding the Overseas Territories may experience as a result of the UK leaving the European Union. Any future funding arrangements will need to demonstrate value for money and adopt a consistent approach across all government departments that manage such funds. No decisions have yet been taken on this matter.</p> more like this

The island of Barbuda, with a population of 1,800 persons, was recently devastated by Hurricane Irma and the UK is providing humanitarian assistance, through the Red Cross and the Pan American Health Organisation, to the affected population. We have also released £14 million, to Antigua and Barbuda, for climate-resilient infrastructure projects to help the islands build back better and stronger. DFID is awaiting the World Bank’s post disaster needs assessment and will review future needs accordingly, in collaboration with other donors. All of this UK support will be classified as ODA.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK has argued for flexibility in the Official Development Assistance (ODA) rules for how donors respond to catastrophic humanitarian crises, such as the recent hurricanes in the Caribbean, and recognition of the vulnerabilities of Small Island Developing States. As a result, in October 2017 the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) agreed on the need to create a new mechanism to re-admit countries that had graduated from ODA eligibility back to the list of ODA-eligible countries if their Gross National Income per capita falls below the High Income Country threshold. In addition, members of the DAC have agreed to establish a process which could allow previous ODA recipients to receive short-term ODA support in the event of catastrophic humanitarian crises. Anguilla was an ODA recipient until 2014 and is assessed by the World Bank to be a High Income Country.</p><p>The destructive force of hurricane Irma was unprecedented, leaving Anguilla damaged extensively. As part of our response the UK has delivered more than 220 tonnes of aid to the island. To support the reconstruction effort the UK has launched a Private Sector Task Force, headed by William Bullard, to identify private sector support and investment, and provide a public-private forum for engagement on building back better in Anguilla as well as other Caribbean Overseas Territories.</p>
