To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what assistance his Department has provided to Loughborough university’s water engineering development centre in its work on developing Somaliland’s water programme. (80592)

We are aware of Loughborough university’s links with Somaliland. We do not support these directly but are funding a number of projects with UNICEF who have supported some of Loughborough university’s activities in Somaliland. UNICEF also undertake considerable work in water and sanitation with the authorities in Somaliland on behalf of DFID and a number of other donors.
