Guinea-Bissau: International Assistance

Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what (a) bilateral and (b) multilateral aid projects are being undertaken with UK funding in Guinea-Bissau. (141749)

The UK does not have a bilateral development assistance programme with Guinea-Bissau, though we have recently supported the Government to develop a security sector reform framework, and an NGO to conduct a demining assessment.

The UK's imputed share of multilateral agency development assistance to Guinea-Bissau was £2.517 million in 2005 (based on the UK's total funding for each multilateral and that multilateral's distribution of official development assistance and official aid each year). Agencies normally pool donor funding, so no breakdown of UK spending against individual projects is available.
