To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, how many Yemeni local and national non-governmental organisations received humanitarian aid from her Department in each of the last five years; and what proportion of her Department's overall aid for Yemen that represented in each of those years.
DFID has provided £85.5 million to the Yemen Humanitarian Pooled Fund (YHPF) over the last five years from the total DFID bilateral funding listed in the table below. In 2016, the YHPF provided £94.5 million of support to 7.8 million people, including food security, water and sanitation and health interventions. Approximately £13 million of this funding was delivered by local and national NGOs.
In addition, in 2017/18 we will provide £24 million to our Multi-Sector Humanitarian Response programme, approximately £1.5m of which will directly support local and national NGOs.
