In 2017 the UK provided £3 million of ODA as such debt relief on ECGD loans.</p><p> </p><p>Therefore in 2017 the total UK debt relief, through the MDRI and bilaterally, represented 0.78% of total UK ODA in 2017.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Grand Bargain commits aid organisations and donors to achieve by 2020 a global, aggregated target of at least 25 per cent of humanitarian funding to local and national responders as directly as possible. DFID does not currently capture the proportion of UK humanitarian funding that goes to such responders. However, the UK’s newly published Humanitarian Reform Policy outlines how national and local actors will be at the centre of DFID’s work. DFID is making progress on this, for example, through support to the Start Fund (£30 million 3 year programme agreed until 2018) that provides rapid support to humanitarian crises such as a landslide in Sierra Leone, flooding in Nepal and Bangladesh, and displacement in the Philippines caused by conflict in Mindanao. Start Fund report that 42% of projects in 2015/16 were implemented fully or partially by a local partner.</p> more like this

The UK government has provided £1.5 million to the ICRC to help treat patients in 11 hospitals in Gaza by restocking vital medical supplies and providing physical rehabilitative services.</p> more like this
