To ask Her Majesty's Government which projects run by non-governmental organisations in Peru are supported directly or indirectly by the United Kingdom; and what is the cost of providing that support.

The Department for International Development (DfID) directly supports 12 projects in Peru run by non-government organisations (NGOs) through the Governance and Transparency Fund and the Civil Society Challenge Fund. Support through these NGOs totals nearly £30 million over five years (2008-13). Several DfID Programme Partnership Arrangements with civil society organisations also support activities in Latin America, including Peru.

Details on all of these activities can be found at:

In addition, the UK supports work in Latin America through contributions to multilateral organisations, including the Inter-American Development Bank, World Bank, European Commission and UN.
