Sudan: International Assistance

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what support the UK is giving to local civil society organisations in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan. (227647)

The Department for International Development (DFID) has provided $446,634 to support the activities of local civil society organisations in the Nuba Mountains through an FCO, DFID and Peace Building Fund.

In 2008 DFID has also provided around $123,000 to civil society organisations in South Kordofan through the Common Humanitarian Fund. It is not possible to disaggregate this figure for the Nuba Mountains.

DFID also contributes to the Multi Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) which, from its inception in September 2005 up to the end of 2007, has provided an estimated $26.13 million in funding for Southern Kordofan. It is not possible to disaggregate this figure for the Nuba Mountains, or what support was given to civil society organisations.
