Sudan: Overseas Aid

Volume 494: debated on Wednesday 24 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what development assistance his Department is providing to (a) the government of national unity in Sudan and (b) the government of Southern Sudan. (281200)

The UK Government do not transfer funds directly to the Government of National Unity (GNU) or the Government of South Sudan (GoSS). Most UK aid to Sudan is channelled through UN and World Bank managed multi-donor pooled funds, such as the Multi-Donor Trust Funds (MDTFs) in support of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, to which we have contributed £74.6 million since 2005 and through non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
