To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what plans she has to work with Cabinet colleagues towards a concerted global effect to restore peace in South Sudan by international investment in rebuilding hospitals, schools and livelihoods in addition to humanitarian aid and peacekeeping operations.
Since the outbreak of fighting in December 2013, the UK has led the way in responding to the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan, providing more than £190m to the response in South Sudan (£132.5m for affected people inside South Sudan, and £58m for refugees in neighbouring countries).
We stand ready to provide further support to the crisis. Longer term development programmes in the areas of health, education and livelihoods also continue, protecting basic service delivery and supporting community resilience. Once a peace agreement is secured, the UK will work with our international partners to determine what other support may be required in a post conflict environment.
