To ask the Minister of State, Department for International Development what assessment he has made of the impact poor harvests in southern Kyrgyzstan will have on the nutrition of children in the country; and if he will make a statement. 
DFID directly supports health reform, rural livelihoods, water and environment, social development and governance in Kyrgyzstan. Through our work with the European Commission we are providing support to the EU Food Security Programme in Kyrgyzstan. They have not made a specific assessment of the impact of poor harvests in southern Kyrgyzstan on children's nutrition. We have asked the EU Food Security Programme to make an assessment of the situation.
