To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much her Department has allocated to development aid in Burma in 2013; what percentage of this has been allocated to Chin State; and what the aid programme priorities are in Chin State.

The current allocation for development aid in Burma through DFID is £40 million in 2012-13 and £55 million in 2013-14. DFID support in Chin State is channelled through our contributions to two major multidonor Trust Funds, which work across the whole of Burma, including Chin State. These are, firstly, the Three Millennium Development Goals (3 MDG) Fund, which when operational later this year will provide support for health and is the successor to the 3 Diseases Fund, also active in Chin State. Secondly, the UK is providing support through the Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) which has been implementing livelihoods and food security programmes in Chin since 2011. A precise percentage breakdown of development aid to Chin State in 2013 is not available.
