To ask Her Majesty's Government what recent assessment they have made of the ability of (1) the Department for International Development, and (2) the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, to measure the impact of their operations in Somalia on conflict and fragility, with particular regard to whether they are doing more good than harm.

A variety of tools and methods are used both by the Department for International Development and the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund to measure the impact of programming and ensure that HMG funded projects do no harm. These include conflict sensitivity analyses, enhanced monitoring of results and impacts (including by independent third parties), and where required the use of more formalised Overseas Security and Justice Assessments.
